Research synopsis

One focus of my research involves dendritic cells found in the eye with special emphasis on the function of these cells in corneal transplantation, neurotrophic keratitis, and herpetic keratitis. We use novel mouse models for corneal diseases, imaging models. I am also involved in clinical trials that use confocal microscopy in various types of infectious keratitis and dry eye disease, with focus on the corneal dendritic cells that we study in our laboratory.
