Frans_Vinberg.jpgFrans Vinberg, PhD, works to understand mechanisms in the retina that enable vision over a wide range of light intensities and colors, and how these mechanisms are affected in major blinding diseases including age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy.

The Vinberg laboratory uses state-of-the-art electrophysiology (single cell and ex vivo/in vivo ERG) and Ca2+ imaging techniques together with basic pharmacology and molecular/cell biology tools to study fundamental molecular/cellular and disease mechanisms, mainly in the photoreceptor and retinal pigment epithelium cells from mice, primates and donor human eyes.
