Research Interests:

Dr. Veldman’s research is focused on optic nerve and retinal degenerative disease and injury models and methods to stimulate regeneration within the visual system following these pathological events.  Specifically, he is studying the molecular and genetic mechanisms of successful optic nerve regeneration in the zebrafish model with the hopes of translating these findings into new therapies for patients with conditions such as glaucoma.
