THERAPIES TO PRESERVE VISION IN USHER SYNDROME

March 13, 2018

Monte Westerfield, PhD

In this USH Talk, Dr. Monte Westerfield presents research on animal models of Usher syndrome. This research shows that a specific type of cellular stress is responsible for degeneration of photoreceptors and inner ear cells. These discoveries provide strategies for preclinical testing of therapies to prolong vision in persons with Usher syndrome.
