We are committed to research of eye diseases at the highest standard and offer unique opportunities in the study of eye diseases using state-of-the-art research technologies in our laboratories. Our basic science research involves studies on the etiology, molecular genetics, cell biology, histopathology, biochemistry, and therapeutic responses of various eye diseases. We have established a comprehensive research laboratory system with modern facilities:
1. Molecular Genetics and Genome Laboratories
Automated sequencers, PCR and real-time PCR machines, DNA microarray scanner.
2. Cell Biology Laboratories
Laminar-flow clean bench, phase-contrast and fluorescence microscopes, ChemiDoc system.
3. Ocular Pathology Laboratory
Automated tissue processor and embedding center, crystat, and rotary microtome.
4. Analytical Laboratory
Sample processing facilities, HPLC, GCMS, and LCMSMS.
5. Animal Surgery and Animal Rooms
Surgical microscope, animal holding facilities.
6. Microscopy Laboratory
Fluorescence microcopy with imaging system, laser capture micro-dissection system.
We conduct research in the following fields with cross utilization of technologies on various disease entities :
|Molecular genetics||Genomic studies|
|Cell biology||Stem cell biology|
|Toxicology studies||Herbal medicine & pharmacology|
|Experimental animal models||Epidemiology of eye diseases|
|Cataracts||Cornea and external eye diseases|
|Refractive errors||High myopia|
|Glaucoma||Macular and retinal diseases|
|Ocular oncology: retinoblastoma||Pediatric ophthalmology|
