Main projects in our department are molecular mechanism of glaucoma development, and retinal regeneration therapy. In detail,we are investigating the molecular mechanism in relation to glaucoma development, exploring a suitable therapy for genetic factors of glaucoma patients, developing a new therapy based on the mechanism of neuroprotection on the glaucomatous optic nerve damage and establishing a new neural stem cells for retinal regeneration. Clinically, risk factors for results of glaucoma surgeries are analyzed, and treatments of ocular complications in leprosy and familial amiloidotic poly-neuropathy are also involved.
