Research Summary

Research Summary

Dr. Hoang is a research scientist. His main interest is in molecular signaling that regulates vascular abnormality in diabetic retinopathy with the goal of identifying a molecular target, which can correct vascular defects. His current research project focuses on answering a mysterious question: why are humans highly susceptible to diabetic retinopathy while rodents are not? By answering this question, he hopes to develop a rodent diabetic retinopathy model for testing drugs and for unraveling molecular mechanism that protects retinal vascular dysfunction.
