  • Disease of the retina
  • Determine the molecular and activity-dependent mechanisms that regulate synaptic connectivity between retinal neurons during development and circuit assembly
  • Determine the structural and functional impact of retinal disease on synaptic connectivity between outer and inner retinal neurons
  • Correlate synaptic plasticity mechanisms during retinal development and during disease conditions
  • Determine genetic and/or pharmacological strategies that can recover synaptic organization and function in retinal disease conditions
