Rick Liu's Profile Picture
Dr

Rick Liu

 

Dr Liu is a Research Fellow in Centre for Eye Research Australia and Department of Ophthalmology at University of Melbourne. Dr Liu completed his doctorate in biochemistry/gene engineering at Kaohsiung Medical University (Taiwan, 2006) and postdoctoral training in Pharmacology/Vascular Biology from O’Brien Institute from 2009 to 2011.

His current research has focus on understanding the angiogenesis within the eye (termed ocular neovascularisation) and building a platform of research based on angiogenesis for drug discovery as well as ocular gene therapy, with a particular interest in directing future work into clinical research. Currently, Dr Liu is leading a team charged with developing gene therapies to prevent and delay blindness in major eye diseases that result from pathological neovascularisation.
