Current Research Projects

Project 1:
Inner retinal neurons in normal and degenerating retinas (multiple research projects addressing structural changes in amacrine cells, ganglion cells, blood vessels or glia in animal models of retinitis pigmentosa with a collection of morphological and quantitative methods)

Project 2:
Cellular pathways of apoptosis in degenerating photoreceptors (a multidisciplinary approach aimed at understanding the role of the ceramide sphingolipid pathway in the degeneration process of photoreceptors in mouse models of retinitis pigmentosa)

Project 3:
Environmental enrichment to prevent photoreceptor degeneration in animal models of retinitis pigmentosa (a recent project aimed at attempting to rescue degenerating photoreceptors in mouse models of retinitis pigmentosa by means of environmental modifications).
