Paul Wong, PhD

Reunette Harris Professor of Ophthalmology
Research (Basic Science) Section


Retinal degenerative disease is a major health care burden. Dr. Wong's research interests focus on the understanding of the mechanism behind retinal degeneration. His research is taking traditional human genetic approaches to characterize specific human retinal dystrophies, as well as more functional molecular approaches to studying gene expression in animal models of retinal degeneration in order to dissect out processes and pathways that may underlie the degenerative condition.
