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-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.

Application of animal corneal cells for skin regeneration, tissue engineering and wound healing enhancement

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Engineering of biological skin substitutes has progressed over the years from individual applications of skin cells, or biopolymer scaffolds, to combinations of cells and scaffolds for treatment, healing, and closure of acute and chronic skin wounds. Read more

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

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.
