Enhanced variant interpretation for the discovery of mechanisms underpinning Ophthalmic genomic disorders

This project will utilize large genomic sequencing datasets from the 100,000 genomes project and the UK BioBank to understand how genomic variation impacts the development and function of cells vital for correct vision. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Understanding lights regulation of mood and arousal

Light is a powerful multifaceted stimulus; besides supporting vision, light is critical for a range of ‘non-visual’ responses, ranging from regulation of internal circadian rhythms to direct changes in mood and behaviour. Read more

The circadian clock as a regulator of information processing

Endogenous biological clocks are a ubiquitous feature of living organisms, driving rhythms in countless cellular and physiological functions, and influencing almost all biological processes. Read more

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

CRISPR manipulation of gene expression in retinal organoids to model and rescue human disease

Human pluripotent stem cells can be used in the lab to grow 3D retinal structures called retinal organoids. This allows us to investigate both the early and later events of human eye development and disease. Read more

CRISPR-activation to prevent genetic eye disease

Mutations causing a lack of sufficient protein activity resulting from haploinsufficiency or hypomorphic alleles are the cause of most inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs). Read more

Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
