Goran Petrovski group

Goran Petrovski is a professor and senior consultant in vitreoretinal and cataract surgery at the Department of Ophthalmology, Oslo University Hospital and University of Oslo. His hybrid background in medicine, biochemistry and molecular biology and engineering provide a unique environment for research, development and innovation, while his national and international collaborative network play a crucial part of the successes achieved.

Professor Petrovski leads the Center for Eye Research, where basic and translational research involving stem cells meet in one place: 1) cornea limbal- and stromal- stem cell research and transplantation studies, 2) 3D printing of stem cell-laden corneas and femtosecond laser-assisted transplantation techniques, 3) production of iPSC cells from hematopoietic cells and fibroblast, 4) production of iPSC-derived retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) from age-related macular degeneration patients and controls, 5) transplantation of RPE cells on a biocarrier into pigs, 6) cancer stem cell research in uveal melanomas
