Monte J Radeke, PhD

Dr. Monte Joel Radeke is a Project Scientist in the Center for the Study of Macular Degeneration at the University of California, Santa Barbara and is the Technical Director for the Neuroscience Research Institute's Genomics and Proteomics Shared Resource Facility. He received his doctoral degree in Neurosciences at Stanford University. His research centers on the application of state-of-the-art "omics" technologies to further our understanding of the molecular basis underlying age-related macular degeneration. He focuses on the processes of aging, drusen biogenesis, and inflammation. In addition to these basic science studies, Radeke is working with the California Project to Cure Blindness, a multicenter disease team whose efforts are directed at the development of a stem-cell-based therapy for the treatment of AMD.
