Biographical Sketch 
Cellular Mechanisms of Retinal Degenerative Disorders, Neuroprotection, Unfolded Protein Response, Apoptosis, Ca2+-induced Retinal Degeneration.

Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Neuroprotection for animal models of retinal degenration
Description
We elucidate mechanisms of retinal degeneration in different animal models of retinopathies in order to validate cellular signaling responsible for cytotoxicity of degenerating photoreceptors and design an effective therapeutic treatment.
