Overview of PhD project
Contact Maciej: firstname.lastname@example.org
My project focuses on glaucoma modelling using patient-specific induced pluripotent (iPS) stem cells and a robotic platform. We hope to identify new genes that may confer risk for developing glaucoma but also those responsible for disease progression and homeostasis of retinal ganglion cells, which is the cell type affected in glaucoma.
