Robert Auerbach, PhD

Dr. Auerbach is Emeritus Professor of Zoology, member of the Institute on Aging, and Associate Member of the Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is widely recognized as a pioneer in the area of angiogenesis and endothelial cell differentiation. He has developed specialized techniques for the assessment of angiogenesis in-vivo including the mouse corneal angiogenesis model and the intradermal skin assay. His in-vitro research has led to the isolation of a large number of organ-specific endothelial cell lines, including lines established from retinal, corneal, and choroidal blood vessels. His current research focuses on differential angiogenesis in the eye and on endothelial cell heterogeneity.
