Dr Craig Boote - Academic, Research and Senior
My main research interests are the biophysical properties and structural biology of the cornea and sclera. I am using x-ray scattering and microscopic imaging to investigate the factors that govern corneal transparency and refractive status, and their compromise in disease and surgery. I am also researching the structural biology and biomechanical function of the sclera and optic nerve head, and investigating their role in the development of glaucoma.
I currently teach on the Research & Study Skills modules for the BSc (OP1204) and MSc (OPT7108) Optometry courses.
