Casey's standing as a premier center for gene therapy research is built on three decades of unparalleled expertise studying and caring for people with inherited eye disease. As a major referral center, our ophthalmic genetics program has the personnel, structure and technology to take on the many challenges of gene therapy:
- Physician-scientists and eye surgeons with advanced training and experience in genetic eye disorders and diseases of the retina. While few eye centers have more than one ophthalmic geneticist on staff, Casey has three.
- The focused, coordinated care of a team of genetic counselors, study coordinators and diagnostic technicians
- Cutting edge diagnostic techniques that enable researchers to objectively measure whether a gene medication is working
