Enhancing optic nerve regeneration in injury and disease


  • Dr Amanda Barber

    University of East Anglia

Project summary

Amanda's research focuses on investigating methods to promote retinal ganglion cell axon regeneration in disease and injury models of optic nerve conditions. Her long-term interests are to break down the components that govern long-range axon regeneration with the ultimate aim of developing new therapies for optic neuropathies. Amanda has started her Fellowship in the lab of Professor Keith Martin at the University of Cambridge and will move to Harvard University to work in collaboration with Professor Larry Benowitz.
