Corneal Regeneration Medicine

The Corneal Research Group has begun the task of trying to culture and develop new methods of transplanting corneal cells including epithelial, stromal and endothelial cells. The research focus is on testing different biomaterials and cultrual subtracts that will ease the process of transplantation and improve the successful rate of transplantation. Ultimately, the group hopes to develop minimally invasive treatments for corneal diseases. This work is in collaboration with Professor Gordon Wallace from the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, University of Wollongong.
