Research Interests

Presently, stronger emphasis in my research is on 1) inflammatory and autoimmune aspects of age related macular degeneration and panretinal retinopathies; 2) hereditary retinal diseases such as X-linked and dominant retinitis pigmentosa (RP), Leber's congenital amaurosis, Usher syndrome (RP with hearing loss) and Bardet-Biedl syndrome (RP with obesity, polydactyly, and other systemic manifestations); and 3) nutritional influences on macular function and macular pigment.
