A new R01 grant from the National Eye Institute was awarded to Drs. Monica Jablonski, Abraham Palmer, and several others. The grant is titled, “Genetic Modulators of Glaucoma.”
Dr. Monica Jablonski (Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Tennessee) received the grant to study glaucoma-related traits in HS rats. Dr. Jablonski has been collaborating with the P50 Center, and this grant will fund phenotyping of eye samples and GWAS for glaucoma-related traits.
