The Pepple is investigating the role of the innate immune system in ocular inflammation and studying new anti-inflammatory treatments for patients with uveitis.  

Ocular inflammation, or uveitis, is potentially blinding disease that can affect people of all ages. Using cutting edge molecular methods, including multiplex cytokine analysis, optical coherence tomography angiography, in vivo bioluminescence imaging, and multicolor flow cytometry, the Pepple lab is studying eyes with uveitis to determine the key mediators of ocular inflammation. The lab is also testing compounds that target these key mediators to find promising new therapies for patients.
