Our research aims at shedding light on the complex neuron-supportive functions of Müller cells, the dominant macroglial cells of the retina. These include the maintenance of the retinal ion and volume homeostasis, their contribution to neurotransmission or their fascinating function as living optical fibers. Currently, our research focusses on investigations of changes in the intimate cross talk between Müller cells, microglia and retinal neurons in the healthy and diseased retina and modulation thereof using gene therapeutic approaches.
