I am a Clinician Scientist working in the field of hereditary retinal and macular degenerations. I direct a regional referral service for these diseases at the Ross Eye Institute. My NIH- and VA-funded laboratory is focused on the development of gene-based and nucleic acid therapeutics for hereditary retinal degenerations and common age-related macular degeneration.
