Retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration are both genetic disorders that can cause loss of vision and neither has a cure.

UH Research Team Examines Eye Disease with $2.5 Million Award

 

Four words you never want to hear from the eye doctor are retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration. Both are genetic disorders that can cause loss of vision and neither has a cure. A team of biomedical researchers at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering is now tackling both eye diseases by exploring a protein in the retina that links them: peripherin2 (prph2).
