Research in ocular pathology and visual pathways

Strategic objectives

  • Development of diagnostic algorithms based on the study of the retinal nerve fibre layer and the optic nerve for neuro-ophthalmological and neurological diseases
  • Genetics of eye diseases (glaucoma and AMD) Identification of new candidate genes in congenital glaucoma
  • To improve systems for diagnosis and progression of structural and functional damage in glaucoma Development of diagnostic and progression algorithms
  • Analysis of the role of inflammation and oxidative activity in the pathophysiology of glaucoma
  • Evaluation of new anti-glaucomatous surgical procedures Trabecular implants and suprachoroidal surgery
  • Development of an in vivo optic nerve oxygenation/perfusion analysis system
  • To design new diagnostic methods for ocular surface diseases
  • Development of new formulations for the treatment of dry eye
  • Development and application of ophthalmic drug delivery systems
