Ms. Saxena’s prime interest and current research involves developing custom gene-delivery strategies for retinal disorders. She is currently working on projects that involve developing efficient gene-editing strategies to correct for retinal disorders in patient cell lines, such as Leber congenital amaurosis and Best disease. Furthermore, her work involves exploring the potential outcomes and effects of Cas9-induced editing in different cells and 3D retinal organoids.
