Ding Wen (Roger) Chen has received his BSc from the Biomedical Science program at the University of Waterloo. After finishing his undergraduate studies, he continued with his education at the UW School of Pharmacy as a PhD student in the Foldvari Research Group. His project focuses on examining the cellular and molecular interactions in the retina under glaucoma-inducing conditions. The study aims to identify neuroprotective/ neuroregenerative properties that could be applied using gene therapy to impede the progression of glaucoma and also to promote the restoration of lost vision.
