Dr. Rogers' Research Project

Optical Instrumentation and Technology Platforms for the Study and Screening of Retinal Disease

Current Research Interests

A critical component of the treatment, prevention, and basic research of retinal disease is the ability to image and quantify changes in structure and function of cells and tissue. Optical methods are particularly useful because of their potential to be adapted to clinical settings and their ability to image at cellular-scale resolution. Dr. Rogers' research targets the development of new imaging modalities that build on advances in Adaptive Optics (AO) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and leverage the physics of light scattering from tissue structures to quantify changes associated with different disease states. These quantitative imaging methods are valuable tools for basic research and could potentially be used in the clinic to enable early disease screening and detection, to study disease progression, and to monitor treatment.
