Pupillometry in clinical settings

The human eye can be described as an optical system; The eye focuses and processes incoming light through the lens and the retina . The pupil, an opening in the ring shaped iris, optimizes retinal illumination. Pupil size is modulated by two factors: by the level of ambient light, and

An integrated engineering-computational-biological approach to unravel molecular dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease

In this cross-campus proposal, we set out to develop a human-relevant in vitro platform for studying Parkinson’s disease (PD), and to use it for identifying PD-associated abnormal pathways using patient-specific differentiated cells. Over the first six months, we developed the computational, biological, and engineering infrastructure for tackling this goal, advancing
