Research Interests:

Neuroprotective treatments, Retinal mechanisms of refractive development, Diabetic retinopathy

Dr. Pardue’s lab is focused on developing treatments for people with vision loss.  Steps to successful treatment require understanding the mechanisms of the disease and characterizing temporal changes to identify therapeutic windows, with the ultimate goal of rehabilitation of visual function.  She uses behavioral electrophysiological, morphological, molecular, and imaging approaches to evaluate changes in retinal function and structure.  Her research is guided by applying knowledge of retinal circuits and visual processing, often leading to studies of cognition and the interaction of retinal and visual circuits during health and disease.  Her studies start in animal models and move to human trials when possible.
