Comparison of Hydroxyapaptite Deposits in Primate and Human sub-RPE Deposits

Research Collaboration with University of Maryland School of Medicine

Dr. Kavita Hegde is working on a collaborative research project with Dr. Richard Thompson, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Maryland School of Medicine. The project involves detection of sub-RPE hydroxyapatite deposits, the putative early markers of age-related macular degeneration, using fluorescence techniques.
