Research Overview

Anne Fulton investigates the role of photoreceptors in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Her recent research has explored the hypothesis that the growing photoreceptors' escalating demands for energy and oxygen contribute to the retinal hypoxia that leads to clinical ROP. Additionally, the photoreceptors are damaged if their oxygen needs are not met. Her recent research has incidated: Rapid increase in ocular rhodopsin content during early infancy. During development rod photoreceptor sensitivity determines dark-adapted, rod-mediated visual sensitivity. Impaired dark-adapted thresholds in infants with a history of mild retinopathy of prematurity considered to have resolved completely at the time of study. About Anne Fulton Anne Fulton is a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine. She completed an internship at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and a residency at Yale University School of Medicine.
