Molecular genetic and digital technologies are applied to advance the understanding and treatment of blinding disease. This site provides resources for the formation of laboratory networks, both real and virtual, so individuals skilled in ophthalmology, biology, and informatics may form into cooperative teams.
The Mahajan Lab is committed to using Precision Health techniques to bring together scientists and surgeons in their effort to find biomarkers for the cellular status in health and disease. Surigical sampling of vitreous fluid, tear fluid, and other ophthalmic tissues will be key in prediciting eye disease and pinpointing optimum therapies. Precision Medicine is revealing the molecular makeup underlying blinding eye disease and revealing ideal therapeutic regimes. These multi-protein snapshots of diseased tissues can expose ongoing molecular processes in real time that can benefit researchers, physicians, and patients.
