Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My research focuses on the pathological mechanisms of glaucoma. The characteristic events occurring during progression of glaucoma are the death of nerve cells in the eye (retinal ganglion cells) and damage to the optic nerve. We are testing the hypothesis that transcription factors, the proteins controlling gene expression, and astrocytes—one type of supporting cell in the nervous system—play a crucial role in both events. Therefore, my efforts are dedicated to understanding the interaction of nerve cells and astrocytes, and to reveal the roles of transcription factors in neuronal cell death, particularly through the activation of astrocytes.
