F. Bardag-Gorce Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Torrance, CA USA Biography
Biography of F. Bardag-Gorce
Dr. Bardag-Gorce has been studying ocular surface disease for the last 6 years, and has since published and co‑authored 6 peer-reviewed publications in the field. She began her research on the treatment of limbal stem cell deficiency using cultured autologous oral mucosa epithelial cell sheet (CAOMECS). During these six years, and under her supervision and guidance, her lab has successfully completed pre-clinical studies related to the efficacy and safety of CAOMECS cell-based therapy [see above cited publications]. She is currently directing a new study approved by the Institutional Research Board in which subjects are being recruited for the human oral mucosal epithelial cell sheet characterization. The long-term goal of this study is to regenerate corneal epithelium in patients with severe ocular surface diseases using autologous oral mucosa epithelial cell sheet grafts.
