The Poche lab applies a multi-disciplinary approach that includes genetic loss- and gain-of-function experiments, molecular biology and live retinal confocal microscopy to elucidate molecular mechanisms regulating retinal progenitor cell proliferation and differentiation. Their goal is to identify to new therapeutic interventions to restore sight and treat cancers such as retinoblastoma.
