Research Interests

The laboratory is focused in the structure and function of tear proteins as related to dry eye diseases. Tears contain a variety of proteins that protect the ocular surface. The overall goal is to learn the role of proteins in the molecular mechanisms of tear film function. Current efforts are focused on understanding the molecular basis of selectivity, for a group of lipid binding proteins in tears.
