This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2016 with a primary purpose of translational and applied research – human sensory organ disorders – skin, eyes and ears.

  • small animal models of wound infections (wound, infection, therapy, intelligent-dressing)

  • transplantation of epithelial cells for LSCD treatment (limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD), rabbit, stem cells, corneal opacity, impression cytology)

  • healing mechanisms of thermal injury wounds (healing, thermal wounds, skin grafts)

  • regenerative therapies for skin (skin, regeneration, wound healing)

  • molecular control of skin development, regeneration, ageing and carcinogenesis (skin, hair growth, wound healing, cancer, ageing)

  • cellular, drug and gene based therapy for eye disease (rodent, AMD, vision, retina, therapeutics)

  • stem cell therapies for retinal degeneration (retina, regeneration, stem cells, therapy, blindness)

  • the role of rab GTPases in disease (eye, eye disease, gene therapy, aging)

  • mechanisms of intraocular pressure regulation (glaucoma, intraocular pressure, blindness)
