Currently, our research program delineates projects exploring neuroinflammation in a wide translational spectrum, aiming to understand and develop new treatments for debilitating retinal pathologies. Using state-of-the-art methods and equipment developed specifically for the investigation of adult retinal tissue, we provide a novel approach to understanding the disease process as well as finding treatment strategies to alleviate symptoms in patients suffering from retinal degenerative disease. Our biomimetic tissue culture system offers unique opportunities to study biochemical and biomechanical factors influence on retinal health in isolation, allowing for limits, parameters and interactions to be precisely defined. As the retina and its glial system is highly similar to other parts of the CNS, we aim to translate our results to brain and spinal cord neuronal research.
