Alona Cramer

BA MSc

Clarendon Scholar and DPhil Student

Biography

During her studies for an MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, Alona became increasingly fascinated with the field of vision and particularly with the potential of cell replacement therapies for neural regeneration. The awarding of a prestigious Clarendon Scholarship to Alona has permitted her to study for a DPhil in Professor Robert MacLaren's research group at the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology.  Her research project explores the use of stem cell therapies for retinal degeneration. In particular Alona's research focuses on cell replacement therapy, using stem cells and rod photoreceptor progenitors, for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa, one of the primary causes of inherited retinal blindness worldwide.
