Seminar title: "Pathogenic signaling pathways in glaucomatous ocular hypertension and optic neuropathy"
Dr. Clark's research interests are focused understanding the biochemical, cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathobiology of glaucoma and other ocular diseases. His research focuses on the trabecular meshwork, optic nerve head, and retinal ganglion cells using molecular genetics, cell culture, ex vivo organ culture, and mouse models of glaucoma. He collaborates with laboratories throughout the US as well as internationally.
