Drs. Chucair-Elliott and Freeman receive BrightFocus Vision Grant
A project initiated by Dr. Ana Chucair-Elliott on age-related changes in the retinal epigenome has been funded by the BrightFocus Foundation. The project “Inducible cell-specific mouse models for paired epigenetic and transcriptomic studies of microglia and Müller glia in age-related macular degeneration” will be examining glial age-related epigenomic alterations in the context of Age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The two year grant award will utilize new mouse models developed in the lab.
