Sai Nair, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Anatomy. He obtained a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Mumbai, India. During his PhD, Dr. Nair studied the role of cell surface receptors in regulation of neutrophil effector functions. Dr. Nair received his postdoctoral training in Dr. Simon John’s laboratory at The Jackson Laboratory. He worked extensively on characterizing both spontaneous and chemically induced mouse mutants that recapitulate features of human glaucoma. He has identified genes contributing to glaucoma, generated new mouse models of human glaucoma and have utilized them to gain insight into the underlying pathological causes of the disease. In 2013, he joined the UCSF faculty where his lab studies the role of genetic factors contributing to ocular diseases with a major focus on glaucoma. His laboratory employs a multi-disciplinary approach by integrating the use of animal models, genetics, genomics, molecular biology, cell-biology and physiology based experiments to gain mechanistic insight into disease pathogenesis.
