Retina and Posterior Segment axis
The retina covers the back of the eye. It contains receptor cells (rods and cones) that convert light energy into nerve signals that are then sent to the brain via the optic nerve.
The research in this axis is focused on the study of disorders that lead to retinal degeneration and dysfunction. The following pages present the research topics, recent discoveries and the list of members of the Retina and Posterior Segment axis.
