Project Summary: The goal of Dr. Caldwell’s current VA research is to delineate the molecular mechanisms that lead to trauma-induced retinal neuronal and vascular injury and identify novel strategies to prevent or reverse the damage and preserve vision. The lack of understanding of the detailed molecular mechanisms by which ocular trauma damages the retinal neurons and vascular cells represents a critical knowledge gap in developing effective therapies. Therefore, the goal of this research is to...
