Research is focused on mechanisms of retinal degeneration and gene therapy. We presently study the role of Crumbs, MAGUK and interacting proteins in photoreceptors, Müller glia cells and the brain. Our goal is to understand the processes that underlie deregulated photoreceptor cell polarization and adhesion in retinal degeneration and stimulate to apply this knowledge in the development of therapeutic tools.
