Dr. Vinay Aakalu Dr. Vinay Aakalu, assistant professor of ophthalmology and director of the Lacrimal Cell Biology Laboratory at UIC, is investigating the use of stem cells to treat dry eye with a five-year, $1,180,000 grant from the National Eye Institute. Aakalu is also an oculoplastic surgeon and treats conditions related to the orbit, eyelids and structures related to the production of tears which make up the lacrimal system. He is particularly interested in helping patients with severe ocular surface diseases and dry eye disease. Aakalu is looking at using stem cells to help replace lost or damaged tissue that makes up the tear-producing lacrymal glands. In many cases of severe dry eye, these glands produce an insufficient amount of tears to keep the eye moisturized. Removing, growing and reimplanting adult stem cells from poorly functioning lachrymal glands could theoretically help the glands build new tissue and produce more tears to alleviate severe dry eye. But, there are very few stem cells in lacrymal glands to begin with, and they are difficult to identify and isolate for therapeutic infusion. Aakalu is working on developing techniques to isolate adult lacrymal stem cells from donor tear glands for both therapeutic purposes and well as for research purposes.
