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.

Post stroke visual impairment: improving our risk assessment and service and care

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Visual impairment is common in stroke affecting two thirds of all stroke survivors of which many are permanent and severe visual impairments. Read more

Pharmaceutical Sciences - Exploring novel experimental therapeutics for mitochondrial

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

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
