Ophthalmology Times: Investigators receive grant to develop alternative to treat eye disease
Research study led by UC pharmacy faculty shows promise for treating eye diseases
A team of researchers at the University of Cincinnati's Department of Chemistry and Department of Ophthalmology, in collaboration with researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the Ohio State University, have received a four-year, $1.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health/National Eye Institute to develop a drug delivery system that is more efficient and longer lasting than conventional eye injections.
"Direct injections of medications into the eye are not only an unpleasant experience but repeated injections can lead to severe adverse effects to the eye, which can be sight-threatening," says Kevin Li, the UC pharmaceutical scientist who is leading the research study.
