Welcome to the Mendel Lab

We focus on Gene Therapy Research for Inherited Retinal Dystrophies (IRDs).

We take DNA and rearrange the genes to make correct coding.


Pre-Clinical Model


Testing surgery and use of DNA into the retina to see what works best.


Treatment of Childhood IRDs

Our hope is to take translational  genetics research into the clinic.


About Us

Our laboratory combines gene therapy and surgical experiments on pre-clinical models. Our goal is to create new treatments for IRDs. 

About Dr. Mendel

In addition to seeing both adult and pediatric patients, Dr. Mendel leads the translational Mendel Laboratory investigating new treatments for inherited retinal diseases.
