The Mumm Lab

  • The Mumm Lab research goal is to understand how neural circuits are formed, how they function, and how they can be regenerated, to develop new therapies for retinal regeneration. An emphasis is placed on translating what can be learned in regenerative model systems to develop novel therapies for stimulating dormant regenerative capacities in humans, utilizing zebrafish, due to significant advantages afforded by this species.

    Research Areas: drug delivery, retinal degeneration, retinal regeneration, retinal circuitry
