Lev Prasov Lab

Gene and Pathway Discovery in Inherited Eye Disease

The Prasov lab seeks to identify novel genes and pathways in inherited ocular conditions with the hope of developing or improving therapies for these conditions. We use a combination of human genetics and mammalian and cell culture models to identify and validate disease genes and to identify novel pathways for pathogenesis. Our aim is to bring back these discoveries to our patients and aid in the diagnosis and treatment of their conditions.   We collaborate extensively with basic researchers and clinicians at the University of Michigan and across the world.
