Biography

My primary research focus is on neuroprotection in retinal and cerebral ischemic injury. We aim to develop and use animal models for understanding the underlying mechanisms of retinal and cerebral ischemic injury as well as providing a platform for screening of various pharmacological and natural agents, with a long-term goal of developing new therapeutic targets and novel neuroprotective agents of clinical efficacy in the treatment of ischemic retinopathy and cerebral ischemia.

The current research focus includes:

  1. Neuroprotection in retinal degenerative diseases – biology and therapeutics
  2. Ocular angiogenesis – disease, mechanisms and therapeutics
  3. Bioengineering – intraocular drug delivery and intraocular tamponades
  4. Pathogenesis of stroke using various transgenic and knockout mouse models
