Saghizadeh Ghiam Lab

The Saghizadeh Ghiam Lab is focused on identifying specific molecular corneal defects associated with corneal pathological conditions, such as diabetes. The goal is to understand the roles of both microRNAs and nanosized extracellular vesicles (EVs) in stem cell maintenance and activation in human limbal-enriched stem cell niche. The ultimate goal of the lab is to restore stem cell function for future clinical translation.
