Functional imaging with cellular resolution in the living eye
Grant number: DE120101931 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015
Adaptive optics allows the visualisation of individual cells and capillaries in the living human eye. This project will use adaptive optics to explore the normal function of these microscopic objects, and how this function changes in eyes suffering from disease. This will aid in developing new ways to diagnose and treat debilitating eye diseases.
