Deepening Our Understanding Of Ocular Surface Neuroimmunology
Grant number: 1126540 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
It is becoming clear that the interaction between corneal nerves and immune cells underpin many inflammatory conditions of the ocular surface. Despite this increased interest, very little is known about the relationship between corneal nerves and immune cells in this outermost layer of the eye. This project will investigate the relationship between corneal nerves and immune cells during health and corneal inflammation to identify therapeutic targets to treat corneal disease.
