PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Lipid flipping in vision: seeing is believing!

Mutations in the ABCR gene are responsible for a number of visual disorders including Stargardt's disease (STGD). This disease is associated with loss of central vision, delayed dark adaptation and progressive loss of photoreceptor cells. Diagnosis of the disease is apparent through the presence of small yellow pigmentation in the retina.

This project is open to Honours, Masters and PhD students
