Combating optic nerve degeneration in Wolfram syndrome

One of the most important developments in my team is our collaboration with Dr. Raj Apte's team. Dr. Apte is a renowned physician-scientist and expert in retinal surgeries and molecular biology. His and our teams are working together to make new mouse models of Wolfram syndrome to study the mechanisms of optic nerve degeneration and create different types of eye cells using iPS cells of patients with Wolfram syndrome. I will keep you updated about our progress.

Thank you for reading this blog. I hope you have a wonderful day. Kindly, Fumi Urano
