Functional genomics of the retina in health and disease

Despite major clinical and therapeutic achievements in ophthalmology, the number of people suffering from serious visual impairment is growing. This paradox reflects the fact that we have yet to find ways of stemming and repairing the damage from diseases that affect the retina such as Inherited Retinal Degenerations (IRD) and Age-Related-Macular-Degeneration (ARMD). The disability is especially important in a society in which visual communication is ever-increasing; about 90% of all information we use to interact in society flows through the visual system.
