Dr. Yazdani began his research career with studying the toxic mechanisms of action of hazardous substances, particularly oxidative stress induction. He later linked it to pathophysiology of dry eye disease and treatment of limbal stem cell deficiency. Currently, as a member of Metabolomics & Metabolic Molecular Biology group, he is investigating the metabolic changes of rare diseases (e.g., inborn errors of metabolism) and dry eye disease. The main goal is to better understand the underlying mechanisms using mass spectrometry-based metabolomics.
