    Modeling Retinitis Pigmentosa using patient-derived human iPSC organoids
    California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) DISC0-14449Jul 1, 2023 - Jun 20, 2026
    Role: Post-doctoral Scholar
    Description: The purpose of this study is to generate a 3D retinal organoid model of adRP due to copy number variants and P23H in the RHO gene using patient-derived iPSC lines to decipher the pathogenesis and to design novel therapeutic strategies.
    Photoreceptor remodeling in the hibernating cone-dominant 13-lined ground squirrel as a model for macular degeneration in humans
    BrightFocus Foundation for Macular Degeneration Research M2023005FJul 1, 2023 - Jun 30, 2025
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: The goal of the study is to leverage the clinically relevant features of the squirrel model, to understand how squirrel photoreceptor, glial, and immune cells are involved in overcoming hibernation stress, an understanding that could lead to novel therapies for AMD.
    Retinal organoid-based modeling and gene editing for GUCY2D-associated Cone Rod dystrophy
    All May See Foundation Jul 1, 2023 - Jun 30, 2024
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: The purpose of this study is to develop a novel GUCY2D-CORD6 variants’ model-in-a-dish and compare them with a gene edited counterpart cell line for the development of future clinical therapies.
    Developing Cone-Dominant Retinal Disease Models as a Resource for Translational Vision Research
    NEI/NIH U24EY029891Sep 30, 2018 - Aug 31, 2023
    Role: Post-doctoral Scholar
    Description: The purpose of this study is to assess cell replacement strategies in alternative species like 13-lined ground squirrels and Tree shrews.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
