Alfredo Dubra - Associate Professor of Ophthalmology

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

The optics of the eye can be thought of as an imperfect microscope objective through which the retina can be observed. Dr. Dubra's lab uses adaptive optics, a technology originally developed to observe distant stars and galaxies, to improve this microscope objective so that individual retinal and blood cells can be visualized. Moreover, they use and invent new microscopy imaging methods to reveal cellular and sub-cellular structures in the eye through a multidisciplinary approach that integrates optics, computer science, vision science, electrical engineering and other engineering disciplines.
