Exosomes as a therapy for glaucoma

This project is fully funded through the generosity of Glaucoma UK.  . What we are looking for. We are seeking an individual who can demonstrate a passion for research, who has some laboratory experience and is keen to forge a career in the eye-research field. Read more

Bioengineering a full thickness cornea

Corneal blindness is the 4th leading cause of global blindness (WHO). Corneal scarring can be caused by trauma or infection and corneal replacement with donor corneas or synthetic (plastic) alternatives is currently the sole treatment to restore vision. Read more

Investigating links between visual symptoms, patient information material and treatment adherence in glaucoma

  Research Group: Optometry and Vision Science
Glaucoma is often associated with ‘tunnel vision’, depicted as a dark ring around the peripheral vision.1-3 Studies have challenged this depiction, with… Read more

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

An exploration of financial and societal costs of myopia in the UK (Ref: SHLS21093

  Research Group: Vision Research
Over the past five decades, the prevalence of myopia in UK children has more than doubled from 10% to 23% (1). There is no ‘safe level’ of myopia with even low amounts increasing the risk of pathologies such as retinal detachment(2) and visual impairment. Read more

Non-image-forming circuits in an in vitro model of the human retina (REF: RDF22/HLS/APP/HILGEN)

The retina is the light‐sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eyeball. It contains specialised cell types that convert the visual scenery into neuronal signals which are transferred via the optic nerve to the visual areas of the brain. 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

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
