Research Interests:

Our goal is to determine the molecular mechanisms by which genetic mutations and aging alter the proteins in the human eye and lead to eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Using a number of biophysical and biochemical methods we investigate how soluble proteins and other molecules form insoluble materials that impede normal function and lead to pathology. We expect our findings to lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies.
