Yang Hu, MD, Ph.D
Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The ultimate goal of my laboratory is to develop efficient therapeutic strategies to achieve CNS neural repair by promoting neuroprotection, axon regeneration and functional recovery.
More specifically, we study retinal ganglion cell and optic nerve in various optic neuropathies including traumatic, glaucomatous and inflammatory optic nerve injuries to fully understand the molecular mechanisms of CNS neurodegeneration and regeneration failure.
Andrew D. Huberman, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Neurobiology and of Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab is focused on brain function, development and repair with emphasis on regeneration to prevent and cure blindness.
We also study the neural circuits that control visual fear and are developing tools to re-map them and treat anxiety disorders.
The specific conditions we aim to understand and develop therapeutic strategies for include: retinal and optic nerve damage in glaucoma, and disorders of sensory-limbic function, such as depression and PTSD.
