Personal profile

Area of Expertise

Dr. Yorio's laboratory focuses on glaucoma. Areas of interest include aqueous humor dynamics, identifying potential targets for neuroprotection with an emphasis and on the role of optic nerve astrocytes in neurodegeneration. Additional studies focus on neuroprotective properties of sigma-1 receptors and in the area of glucocorticoid pharmacology and ocular hypertension, specifically on understanding the role of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) beta in dampening the ocular hypertensive response of glucocorticoids.

Education/Academic qualification

PhD in Biomedical Sciences, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

BS in Biology, Herbert Lehman College
