H. Zhang will be responsible for developing and optimizing the integrated photoacoustic ophthalmoscopy (PAOM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for OCT functional imaging of retinal hemoglobin oxygen saturation (using multi-wavelength PAOM) and retinal blood flow (using Doppler OCT). As a result, the retinal metabolic rate of oxygen will be derived. A. Fawzi will be focusing on optimizing and finalizing the protocols for generating oxygen-induced retinopathy rat and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat models. H. Zhang and A Fawzi will then work together to evaluate the retinal hemoglobin oxygen saturation, retinal blood flow, and retinal metabolic rate of oxygen variations in these models.
