PhD in Vision Sciences: Evaluating functional outcomes of novel therapies for mitochondrial optic neuropathy using ultra-high resolution multi-electrode array

Mitochondrial optic neuropathies result in blindness and are currently untreatable. They arise as a consequence of genetic mutations in either mitochondrial or nuclear DNA and share the common characteristic of primarily affecting retinal ganglion cell (RGC) survival. Read more

Myopia Management - Is it Just for Kids?

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences
‘Myopia Management’ through optical and pharmacological technologies designed to slow eye growth and the progression of myopia have been shown to be safe and effective for children and their availability is set to revolutionise how optometrists manage childhood myopia. Read more

Differentiating Myopia From Glaucoma: Shortening The Diagnostic Pathway For Long Eyes With Novel Tests Of Visual Function

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences
Glaucoma is the primary cause of permanent vision loss worldwide. It affects the retinal cells that transmit visual information to the brain (retinal ganglion cells, RGCs) by putting them under stress, so they no longer work effectively (i.e., they are dysfunctional or ‘sick’). Read more

Reaction time as a metric of selective ON or OFF sensitivity loss in glaucoma

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the developed world and is characterised by loss of visual sensitivity at locations across the field of vision, eventually leading to blindness if uncontrolled. Read more

Identification and management of early allergic eye disease in individuals at risk of keratoconus

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences
This project aims to investigate in detail associations between allergic eye disease and keratoconus in populations with established keratoconus and those with ocular signs and symptoms of allergies. 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

Three-dimensional structural mapping of the retinal neurovascular unit and the influence of diabetes

The aim of this PhD project is to better understand why people with diabetes are at risk of losing their vision. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in developed countries. Read more
