Darpan Malhotra defended his PhD in June 2019, with Bob Molday doubling as his external examiner and our AVN Research Day keynote speaker (see photo of Bob, Darpan, and Joe). The Casey lab is still publishing papers based on Darpan’s impressive body of work about the SLC4A11 corneal transporter. To learn more, check out these publications:
