Title of project:
A Chick Vitreous Proteome Database and Differential Vitreous Protein Expressions during Myopia Development

Despite being the largest component of the eye, vitreous is often overlooked at in research as it is mostly consisted of water. The vitreous humor is a gel-like material in the middle of the eyeball where proteins inside are believed to be responsible for the changes in retinal physiology. Owing to the technical advancement in Mass spectrometry (MS), protein expressions in vitreous could be studied during ocular diseases such as proliferative vitreoretinopathy and diabetic macular edema in recent years. 

The aim of my study is to identify and quantify the protein expressions in vitreous during myopia development. By comparing the protein databases obtained from next generation LC/MS and analytical software, specific proteins related to the development of myopia can then be targeted individually, serving as the foundation for future treatments in the hope of tackling myopia.
