Nasim Jamali is interested in the role of vitamin D in the regulation of angiogenesis and neovascularization, and its impact on eye diseases with a neovascular component. Her work in Dr. Nader Sheibani’s lab has shown that calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D, inhibits retinal neovascularization in an Oxygen-induced Ischemic Retinopathy model, a condition that occurs in immature babies. She is specifically interested in the role of vitamin D in the regulation of retinal vascular cell function.
