    Summary of Research Activities:
    Research in our lab investigates changes in the choroid and retina in age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. We are currently working on the effects of loss in sympathetic innervation (the fight or flight system) on the retinal pathology associated with diabetic retinopathy and choroidal pathology with macular degeneration. We use modern cellular and molecular biology techniques on cell culture and animal samples to evaluate the mechanisms for the disease processes.  We are also interested in the interactions between sympathetic nerves and the vasculature they innervate.
