Researcher | Research Overview
Dr. Sun’s research interests focus on the roles of neurovascular interaction and neuroinflammation in the development of vascular eye disorders including neovascular AMD, retinopathy of prematurity and diabetic retinopathy and tumorigenesis using mouse models, and develop effective ways to treat or prevent vision loss and cancer. Her current research projects include: 1) the mechanisms of neurovascular interaction in controlling retinal neovascularization; 2) SOCS3 mediates retinal neovascularization and neuroinflammation; 3) c-Fos controls neovascularization and inflammation.
