Research synopsis: 

My project focuses on outcomes when human recombinant nerve growth factor is used to treat neurotrophic keratopathies. I am looking at the patients' pre-treatment microscopic ocular surface and confocal microscopic findings, and comparing that information with after treatment values. Additionally, I am interested in Na+ channels and microtubule function related to human nociception (corneal neuropathic pain, epilepsy, cardiac arrhythmia).
