Investigating the role of the inner retina in age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

Project description

Circadian regulation of the retina: novel route to treat age-related macular degeneration?

The lack of disease models for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a key cause of blindness, has hampered the development of therapeutics. Scientists of the EU-funded Retina Rhythm project are investigating how blood vessels of the inner retina, which recent discoveries have proven is highly dynamic, are implicated in AMD development and pathology. Their experiments will unveil the impact of circadian regulation in the early stages of the disease and set the ground for new therapeutic interventions against AMD. More importantly, the identification of key early drivers of AMD development will improve prompt diagnosis and help identify individuals at risk.
