Experimental Ophthalmology

The main focus of our research is the experimental therapy of retinal degenerations. This includes neuroprotection as well as stem cell transplantation in rodent models with induced and genetically engineered retinal damage.

Furthermore, as understanding the underlying pathophysiology is crucial for the success of regenerative approaches we characterize pathways of programmed cell death involved in pharmaceutically induced retinal degeneration.

Identification of adult stem cells and their differentiation towards retinal lineages is also part of our research activities.

Methodology

  • Rodent models of induced and inherited retinal degeneration
  • Molecular biology & cell culture
  • Microsurgery & microscopy incl. immunohistochemistry
