Dissecting the molecular basis for malaria-linked blood vessel pathology in the brain and retina

Cerebral malaria (CM) remains a major cause of morbidity and death. Plasmodium falciparum infected red blood cells cause disruption of the blood-brain/retina barrier, haemorrhage and localised thrombosis in the CNS. Read more

Structural, functional and molecular changes at the human peripheral retina

  Research Group: Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine
START DATE FOR PROJECT. 4 JANUARY 2023. The major aim of this study is to explore the relationship between structural, functional and molecular changes at the human peripheral retina using state of the art clinical imaging and functional testing, supplemented by molecule characterisation using cadaveric eyes.

Developing High Speed Retinomorphic Sensors

Conventional image sensors are designed to reproduce every aspect of the visual field, for example representing brighter regions of a scene as brighter regions in an image. Read more

(BBSRC CASE) Biological mechanisms underlying the impact of visual stimuli on mood and affective state

The WHO predicts mental health problems to be the leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally by 2030. In the last decade, evidence has emerged that the visual system represents a new neurophysiological pathway regulating mood. Read more

Exploring novel experimental therapeutics for mitochondrial disorders of the eye

Background. Primary mitochondrial genetic disease manifestations can involve almost all aspects of the eye. Mitochondrial disorders of the eye are often devastating genetic diseases, causing significant childhood and young adult blindness in the developed world. Read more

Understanding the role of pigmentation in retinal development

Establishing structure-function correlations in vision development  . The aim of this project is to develop methods to study the relationship between pigmentation and vision development in humans and zebrafish.  . Read more

Understanding the Role of Extracellular Vesicle/Exosome Transport in the Visual System

For informal enquiries, please contact the supervisor. Dr Ben Mead (. MeadB@Cardiff.ac.uk. ). Cellular communication has typically been understood as cells secreting messenger proteins, known as cytokines and growth factors, which bind to receptors on recipient cells and elicit their desired effect.
