Research projects are aimed at using stem cells or neural glial cells to rescue vessel atrophy or to regenerate photoreceptor cells in the retina . We are currently exploring the potential to regenerate retinal neurons from the differentiation of stem cells or dedifferentiation of neural glial cells in new animal models.
