T.J. Plageman awarded NIH grant

Dr. T.J. Plageman

Assistant Professor T.J. Plageman of The Ohio State University College of Optometry has been awarded a new NIH grant, Characterizing the fundamental mechanisms of epithelial invagination during ocular morphogenesis. 

With this five-year, $1.93 million award, Dr. Plageman will investigate the mechanics of cell behaviors in embryos to better understand the epithelial invagination that occurs early in the development of the eye.

A fuller understanding of this developmental process may lead to insights into the ocular structural defects that alter vision.
