B'Ann Gabelt, MS

Ms. Gabelt is a Distinguished Scientist in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.  She has 29 years of experience conducting ocular physiology studies related to glaucoma pharmacotherapy and anterior segment gene therapy in nonhuman primates.  These include intraocular pressure, aqueous humor formation, outflow facility and uveoscleral outflow.  She has also developed anterior segment organ-culture systems for pig, monkey, and cow which can be used to measure effects on trabecular outflow.
