The Martin and Ruth Carver Chair in Ocular Cell Biology

The Carver Chair in Ocular Cell Biology was established in 2014.

This chair was awarded in September of 2014 to Robert F. Mullins, Ph.D., Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics. Mullins directs the Chorioretinal Degenerations Laboratory. Its goal is to understand the cellular and molecular basis of human retinal diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), central serous retinopathy, and Best vitelliform macular degeneration. Dr. Mullins and colleagues expect that these studies into the molecular and cellular basis of choroidal and retinal degenerations will lead to improved treatments for the millions of individuals whose sight is threatened by retinal diseases.
