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.
