Research & Grants
Voelcker Grant (Co-PI: Chan)
7/2015 - 6/2018
$450,000 from 7/1/2015 to 6/30/2018 Title: Vascular Dysfunction and Hypoxia in Macular Degeneration To use novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods we developed to detect physiological changes in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and compare with clinical eye exams. Our hypothesis is that reduced choroid blood flow and ocular oxygen and increased vascular leakage will detect AMD patients at a high-risk and help monitor effectiveness of treatment. Role: Co-PI
