Research interests

Her research focuses on the investigation of disease-causing mutations and disease mechanism in photoreceptor cells associated with inherited retinal dystrophy (IRD), primarily retinitis pigmentosa. She is particularly interested in exploring the links between genotypes and disease phenotypes. To date, she has worked in two different research areas: the genetic and mechanistic dissection of various gene mutations lies in the applying the advanced sequencing technology and further bioinformatics tools. In the field of cell apoptosis mechanism, she employed an innovative and quantitative experimental instrument, SmartLight2.0 designed by her lab colleagues to model light damage on the retinal cells without the confounding effect of thermal damage.
