Understanding The Eye's 'Plumbing' Could Lead To Future Treatments For Glaucoma, Other Diseases


UArizona researchers led by Dr. Nicholas Delamere, professor and head of the Department of Physiology at the UArizona College of Medicine – Tucson, have identified a potential molecular mechanism that may hold the key to understanding how pressure is regulated in the eye. Funded by a $2.3 million five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Eye Institute, this research could help to develop future treatments for glaucoma and other diseases.
