About Us

We are passionate about autophagosomes, lysosomes, and other “-somes”. Our lab focuses on investigating the impact of aging on the autophagy lysosomal system and its contribution to ocular hypertension and glaucoma

The TM/SC is a complex tissue located in the anterior segment of the eye responsible of maintaining proper levels of intraocular pressure (IOP). Failure of this tissue function is associated with increase risk in developing glaucoma, a potentially permanent blinding disease, affecting more than 70 million people worldwide
