Brief description By using stem cells taken from patients, I am able to generate unique and important disease models of the eye (glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration) and brain (Alzheimer’s disease). These models allow me to study these important human diseases in extreme detail. My program will help to uncover how and why these diseases develop and will be used to search for new treatments to prevent them or to slow their progression.
