Thomas Reh

The overall focus of Dr. Reh's research is the cell and molecular biology of regeneration in the eye. He has worked at the interface between development and regeneration, focusing on the retina, with the goal of applying the principals learned from developmental biology to design strategies for promoting regeneration of the retina. His team is using both embryonic–stem-cell technology and the stimulation of endogenous repair mechanisms to develop new strategies for retinal repair to restore sight in individuals who have visual impairment through inherited childhood diseases, such as Leber’s congenital amaurosis.
