Divya Sinha’s research in Dr. David Gamm’s lab focuses on using human induced pluripotent stem cells to study the mechanisms associated with Best disease, a human macular degenerative disorder that leads to gradual loss of central vision. This work will not only aid in identifying the underlying causes and pathophysiology of Best disease, but also has the potential for developing novel treatment options.
