Welcome to the Retinal Networks Laboratory at the University of New South Wales.

Retinal diseases including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and diabetic retinopathy are major causes of blindness in developed countries. Treatments for these diseases are limited because the underlying mechanisms of these diseases are not well understood. Our primary goal is to better understand how visual information is processed in the vertebrate retina and the changes which occur in these systems during disease.
