The Power List 2016

Jean Bennett

F.M Kirby Professor of Ophthalmology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

Jean Bennett’s laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics of a number of inherited retinal degenerative diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa and AMD, with the objective of developing therapeutic interventions. She has successfully used viral vectors to deliver transgenes to specific retinal cells, and thereby provided proof-of-principle for ocular gene therapy. She has developed a number of strategies for gene therapy-mediated treatments for retinal disease, some of which are currently undergoing clinical trial.
