Presentation Description :
Modern corneal transplantation techniques provide excellent clinical outcomes post surgery. However, we are focused on generating new therapeutic modalities with higher effectiveness and less invasiveness. For example, we initiated the clinical research of a cell-based therapy for treating corneal endothelial decompensation.
