Current Research
Molecular Basis and Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disease

Simon John wants to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying complex diseases that lead to neural cell death. John and his team collaborate with physicians and engineers with two goals in mind – advancing their research and improving patient care and treatment. In their experimental work, the team uses approaches in genetics, genomics, cell and molecular biology, physiology, and metabolism to understand neurodegenerative diseases, including glaucoma.
