Christine A. Curcio

Christine A Curcio has been a faculty member at the Department of Ophthalmology, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, since 1990. She has collaborated with the Alabama Bank and wonderful scientific colleagues to make many original observations about age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of vision loss in older persons, and human retinal neurobiology.
