Research Summary

Dr. Zieske is interested in understanding the mechanisms involved in corneal wound repair. Currently, his laboratory is investigating how the stroma and epithelium interact during corneal fibrosis and regeneration. He has made the observation that expression of integrin avb6 in the epithelium after wounding appears to play a major role in directing the fibrotic response in the cornea.
