Research Summary

Dr. Haider works to identify key genetic factors that modulate inherited retinal diseases, to investigate the influence of genes on the multipotency of neural stem cells and retinal progenitors, and to develop and test therapeutic targets for retinal degenerations (including AMD and diabetic retinopathy). She recently identified a genetic modifier that is able to ameliorate more than one form of inherited retinal degeneration, and has developed several unique genetic models to study the retinal and vascular phenotypes associated with macular degeneration.
