Fatima Pedrosa Domellöf, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology


My name is Fatima Pedrosa Domellöf. I am a professor of ophthalmology and
chief physician at the hospital eye clinic. And I work both at the eye clinic’s
ophthalmology division and at the Department of Integrative
Medical Biology where I have my lab. My research focuses mainly
on the eye muscles, because I think they are the most
fascinating muscle in the entire body. First of all, they do not get
sick like the other muscles, and secondly, we are incredibly dependent
on them to be able to see sharply if we have a well-functioning eye. I want to truly understand
these muscles purely biologically they have many characteristics that
differ from the other muscles in the body. They are the fastest ones,
they are ineradicable and so on. But I want to help to obtain
a better understanding of how they behave when we operate;
strabismus surgery. And therefore, I want to understand
what strategies there are to cope with these
severe neuromuscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy
and ALS, for example. What do they do that makes them cope
while the other muscles do not that’s how we could describe it.
