Our research has identified a particular cell type (Schlemm’s canal cells) that regulate eye pressure by controlling the drainage of aqueous humor from the eye. In this project, we will develop and apply novel screening technologies to identify new drugs to lower eye pressure by improving aqueous humor drainage across Schlemm’s canal cells.
