Dr Carl Sheridan PhD

Senior Lecturer in Ocular Cell Transplantation Eye and Vision Science


Personal Statement

I am an internationally renowned cell biologist with research experience in ocular cell biology since 1991. My areas of focus have centered on ocular wound healing and cell transplantation research with published papers concerning the ocular surface, cornea, outflow pathway as well as retinal pathologies such as proliferative vitroretinopathy (PVR) and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). I have published and reviewed for almost all Ophthalmology scientific journals and as well as delivering invited Key note lectures. I have organised and chaired sessions at international Ophthalmology and regenerative medicine conferences. I have a keen interest in both tissue engineering and regenerative medicine approaches to prevent and restore sight loss and is passionate about cross discipline research to achieving this goal

Positions are available for highly motivated self-funded studentships (UK/EU/International applications are all welcome). Assistance with all grant applications for funding can be given.
