Dr Andrew Osborne
My research interest lies in how stem cells offer neuroprotection to retinal ganglion cells with particular interest to how secreted factors prevent visual loss.
My project focuses on how platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) can reduce retinal damage in human and animal models of glaucoma and its implications as a future therapy.
