Metabolic Vulnerability as a Diseased Target for Glaucoma

Project Details

Description

Project Narrative Age-related neurodegenerative diseases like glaucoma have no cure and are a significant public health burden. Our research has shown that glaucoma is associated with loss of cellular energy that is amenable to metabolism-based intervention. Findings from this study will inform the development of novel therapeutics that manipulate cellular metabolism to prevent or slow the progression of glaucoma.
