The foundation also supports research programs on retina development in the laboratory of neurogenesis, Faculty of Sciences at the University of Geneva
Most eye diseases that cause blindness are genetically determined. The application of neuroscience to ophthalmology brings us a thorough knowledge of the healthy eye and retina. This is essential to then allow clinical research to build on a solid foundation and complete diagnostic tools and new therapeutic targets.
Our research team is looking into the complex processes of cell cycle progression, neuron specification and morphogenesis in the retina underlying establishment of visual acuity
