The research in the laboratory focuses on
using a canine model to understand the mechanism of posterior capsule
opacification and developing new therapeutic targets to prevent this
pathology. All studies are designed to appropriately model the
conditions in humans and companion animals that contribute to the
development of this most common complication to cataract surgery. The
laboratory provides the opportunity to develop and test treatment
modalities that can then be applied to patients.
will be expected to perform a series of benchtop experiments and
contribute to the completion of a larger research project.
Responsibilities include development of study design, culturing primary
ophthalmic cell lines, troubleshooting experiments, and performing
cadaveric tissue dissections.
Students will spend approximately 8 hours a day, 5 days a week in the lab.
