This information platform that will grow over time is not intended to duplicate the website already devoted to the vision. The objective here is to concentrate the information on topics that are not addressed elsewhere, yet are important in the frame of the research supported by the foundation.
This platform aims to answer questions such as:
– How genes orchestrate the many developmental stages required to build a functional retina?
– Why the knowledge of the embryonic development of the retina can help us understand eye diseases that can occur in the adult?
– How do we identify genes associated with eye diseases such as glaucoma and AMD?
– Why and how the eye structure and vision vary considerably among animal species?
