My PhD research explores the connection between the aging immune system and retinal disease. A more refined understanding of how the aging immune system contributes to inherited and acquired retinal diseases characterized by pathogenic vascular proliferation (e.g., age-related macular degeneration) or photoreceptor cell death (e.g., retinitis pigmentosa) may ultimately lead to novel therapies for these visually debilitating diseases.
