Research Overview

My research is aimed at trying to improve the generation of corneal epithelium (the layer of cells at the front of the eye) from induced pluripotent stem cells using various biological techniques. I started my PhD in October 2018 under the supervision of Professor Andrew Quantock, Professor Clare Hughes, Professor Keith Meek and Dr Rob Young.
