      JOB DESCRIPTION Due to ageing, the impact of vision threatening diseases such as diabetic retinopathy (DR) and age-related macular degeneration ( AMD ) on the health care system will only increase. In this project we will develop techniques to quantitatively assess the oxygen saturation status of the retinal microvasculature. Reduced blood oxygen levels may lead to hypoxia, which is one of the key drivers of the formation of new blood vessels. These new blood vessels are often leaky, which leads to complications such as vision loss and, ultimately, to blindness. The development of techniques to detect the onset of retinal hypoxia will ...
