We study photoreceptor signaling, in sickness and in health, from molecules to visual perception.

We use advanced imaging systems and electrophysiological techniques to study microglia and retinal function in vivo.

We sail through open waters thanks to the exceptionally skilled and engaged members of our lab.

We advance understanding of photoreceptor signaling and the tools available for the research community through our published research and technology development.
