Welcome Kristyn

Kristyn Huffman joins the Borooah Lab in the Shiley Eye Institute with a BS in Molecular Biology and 7 years’ experience in ophthalmic research.

Her past work in ophthalmology includes porous silicon drug delivery systems to provide longer-lasting therapeutics for retinal diseases, creating animal models of retinal disease, and testing the safety and efficacy of a subretinal prosthesis. Kristyn’s curiosity drives her to understand how things work and she enjoys working closely with ophthalmologists that can guide the research to have a real impact on patients’ lives.

Out of the lab, Kristyn enjoys swimming, archery, and exploring nature with her family and dog.
