Award Description: Age-related macular degeneration is the predominant cause of vision loss in adults over 65. Lack of effective treatment stems from both the complexity of the disease, and lack of good animal models in which to study it. This proposal offers the potential to provide a robust early onset mouse model for therapeutic testing. These experiments also provide insight into how modifiable variables (diet) interact with predisposing genetic burden to create AMD pathology. Understanding these relationships will enhance the capacity of the clinician to council at-risk patients.
