Current research

My research interests focus around the different cell death mechanisms that cells in the retina, especially photoreceptors, utilize when the insult against the cell becomes too great. I am especially interested in the role signaling molecules such as calcium have in this cell death when they become dysregulated, and how this dysregulation can be reversed and stabilized, leading ultimately to novel targets for clinical treatments.
