Research Interests
Dr. Ikeda's research interests are related to understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate coordinated proliferation, differentiation and movement of corneal epithelial cells. Her current research focuses on elucidating the molecular pathways through which defects in cytoskeletal organization lead to abnormal proliferation and differentiation of corneal epithelial cells and corneal neovascularization using mouse models. She also works with mouse models elucidating the genetics of retinal disease.
