About Dr. Dinculescu
Dr. Dinculescu received her PhD in Biochemistry from University of Florida in 2002. Her main research focus is on developing therapeutic approaches for Usher syndrome type 3, an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in Clarin-1 (CLRN1) gene, leading to progressive retinal degeneration and hearing loss. In addition, she studies the pathological processes affecting the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)/Bruch’s membrane interface, and the mechanisms underlying the formation of drusen in age-related macular degeneration.
