    • Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Corneal Inflammation and Wound Healing 

      Gagen, Jenny (2011-08)
      Purpose: Accidental or surgical-induced trauma (e.g., refractive surgery) to the corneal epithelium results in keratocyte death immediately below the wound. Subsequent recovery of keratocytes during healing often remains ...
    • MICRORNA: PROFILING AND FUNCTIONAL IMPLICATIONS IN CANCER AND METABOLISM 

      Wang, Xin 1984- (2012-12)
      MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of ~22 nt short, non-coding RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate target mRNA expression. To date, ~2,000 mature miRNAs have been identified in humans and they are estimated to regulate ...
    • Neutrophil Interstitial Migration 

      Hanlon, Samuel 1949- (2012-05)
      Purpose: Molecular events regulating neutrophil extravasation have been extensively researched and described. However, relatively little is known about extravascular interstitial migration of neutrophils and then, much of ...
    • The Physiological and Pathophysiological Role of Nerve Growth Factor at the Ocular Surface 

      Liu, Qiong 1981- (2010-12)
      Purpose: Nerve growth factor (NGF) has been considered as a pleiotrophic factor that is expressed in the nervous, immune and structural tissues of the body, and affects nerve growth, regulates immune responses and influences ...
    • TOLL-LIKE RECEPTOR EXPRESSION AND FUNCTION 

      Redfern, Rachel (2010-12)
      Purpose: Ocular surface inflammation presents from various etiologies (e.g. dry eye and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) infection), yet little is known about the role of toll-like receptors (TLR) which, upon activation, stimulate ...
