20/20: NSERC Ophthalmic Materials Network

2010/11-2014/15 • $4,220,600 • PI,CO
Vision, arguably the most critical of the senses, is dependent on healthy ocular tissues. Unfortunately, disease, aging and congenital defects affect the health of these tissues. 20/20: NSERC Network for the Development of Advanced Opthalmic Materials brings together 11 Canadian researchers from...

Localizing light in the eye for diagnostic and therapeutic applications

2010/11 • $78,845 • PI,CO
The retina of the eye contains light sensitive cells, neurons and blood vessels. Recent adaptive optics technology to correct for the optical effects of eye tissue on light now enables light to be precisely focused onto these structures of the retina at the rear of the eye. As a result, very...
