Glaucoma & Retinal Neurodegeneration Research Group

The aims of our research are to establish new methods of diagnosis of early disease to avoid blindness, identify early markers of cell processes in neurodegenerative disease and investigate therapeutic approaches to their treatment. These objectives are to be achieved using novel non-invasive techniques to assess structural and functional changes in different models of disease and their treatment, with a view to offering quick and effective translation to the clinical arena.
