|Ocular Surface Electrophysiology for Dry Eye Disease|
Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) Career Development Award Jul 1, 2022 - Jun 30, 2026
Description: The goal of this study is to advance novel dry eye disease therapeutics that promote tear fluid secretion by targeting ion transport proteins on epithelial cells lining the ocular surface.
|Ocular Surface Ion Transport in Dry Eye Disease|
All May See Foundation (AMSF) Research Award Apr 21, 2022 - Apr 20, 2023
Description: The goal of this study is to apply ocular surface electrophysiology to discover differences in epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) activity in dry eye disease (DED) patients.
|UCSF-Proctor Clinician Vision Scholars Program|
NIH/NEI K12 EY031372Sep 1, 2021 - Aug 31, 2023
