Jasmin Balmer


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Jasmin's research background is in the field of molecular biology where she has been investigating cell death pathways in animal models of retinal cell death. She joined Professor MacLaren’s research group in order to work on cell replacement therapies for the treatment of retinal degenerative diseases.

Professor MacLaren’s research group has published very promising results obtained by transplanting photoreceptor precursors in the eyes of blind mice resulting in a significant improvement of visual function (Singh et al, 2013). Jasmin's current project aims to optimise this cell transplantation by increasing the cell integration rate as well as the connection of transplanted cells with the host cells.
