Professor of Optometry and Vision Science Suzanne Fleiszig describes Molecular and Cell Biology as one of the research fields within the Vision Science graduate program at UC Berkeley.

Vision research projects in molecular and cell biology include investigations into gene therapy for inherited retinal degeneration, neurobiology of photoreceptors, infectious keratitis in contact lens wearers, pathogenesis of bacterial infection of the cornea, photochemistry of visual pigments and bacterial rhodopsin, epithelial function and regulation, membrane biophysics, corneal physiology, ocular disease processes, myopia, cataract, transplant rejection, ocular inflammation, dry eye, and eye growth regulation.
