Centre for Eye Research

Professor Goran Petrovski is head of the Center. We have wide experience in tissue- and cell culture procedures, as well as a range of analytical procedures including ultrastructural- (electron microscopy), immunohistochemical-, and molecular biological- analyses. Presently, our clinic has the only Program in Scandinavia, for transplantation of ex vivo generated ocular tissue for anterior segment surgery, including autologous transplantation of limbal stem cells performed by Professor Liv Drolsum and conjunctival tissue performed by consultant oculoplastic surgeon Dag Krohn-Hansen.

Professor Morten C. Moe and Senior Scientist Dr. Aboulghassem Shahdadfar is heading the translational research projects at the Center, where isolation and characterization of stem cells from the adult human eye is one of the main strategic research focuses.
