Welcome to the Park Lab

We are located in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. The laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying phototransduction and the determinants of photoreceptor cell health in the retina. We are a multidisciplinary group utilizing advanced microscopy and spectroscopy methods in combination with more traditional biochemistry, microscopy, and cell biology methods.  

Our primary affiliation is in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. We also have secondary affiliations in the Department of Pharmacology and Department of Biochemistry.
