Saghizadeh Ghiam Laboratory

The Saghizadeh Ghiam Laboratory, under the direction of Mehrnoosh Saghizadeh Ghiam, PhD, assistant professor of Biomedical Sciences and Neurosurgery at the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute's Eye Program, is focused on identifying specific molecular corneal defects associated with corneal pathological conditions, such as diabetes. The goal of the Saghizadeh Ghiam Laboratory is to understand the roles of microRNAs in both the differentiated epithelial and stem cells of normal and diabetic corneas and their roles in driving peripheral activation of limbal stem cells in normal and diseased corneas. Our goal, ultimately, is to restore stem cell function for future clinical translation

The Saghizadeh Ghiam Laboratory is affiliated with Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute, Department of Biomedical Sciences and Eye Program.
