Ophthalmic Biology (OBi) Laboratory
Dr. Andrzej Foik
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
OBi Lab utilizes the latest advancements in molecular biology, genetics and viral tracing techniques to find new viral therapies for the restoration of visual signal processing in diseased retina. We use in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology for investigating the system of local and distant communication between different populations of neurons responsible for visual information processing, how disease changes functioning of the visual system, for testing the effects of therapy. We harness new technological and programming strategies to support our efforts into vision restoration.
