Vision impairment and blindness caused by the degeneration of the light sensitive photoreceptors and/or the supporting retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), as in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or retinitis pigmentosa, represents one of the prime causes for disability in industrialized countries, with no effective treatments currently established. Our experimental work focuses on the development of cell-based strategies to replace lost cells in the retina by transplantation of photoreceptors and RPE cells generated from pluripotent stem cells.
