The Ophthalmic Science and Engineering Lab is focused on basic and translational research in ophthalmology and visual neuroscience. Our main research interests are the field of electro-cellular interfaces, optical and electronic microdevices development, and applied science for improving diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various ophthalmic diseases. One of the central themes is the artificial introduction of visual information and its processing by the retina and the visual cortex. We further study learning and plasticity processes in the visual system in animals. Other projects include electrocellular interface with the autonomic system and application of high electrical field for solid tumor ablation (IRE - Irreversible Electroporation).
