Profile: Senior Associate Scientist, SickKids Research Institute

Department:  Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences, University of Toronto

Research Interests:

Dr. Héon’s interests include inherited eye disorders: gene discovery, genotype-phenotype correlations, and clinical trials and her activities include:

  • Molecular characterization of corneal dystrophies
  • Molecular characterization of BardetBiedl Syndrome
  • Molecular characterization of inherited cataract
  • Development of a Registry of Inherited retinal diseases
  • Clinical trial for Retinoblastoma
  • Assessment of visual function parameters in retinal dystrophies

Dr.Héon’s research involves the genetic mapping and candidate gene analysis of genes involved in inherited retinal dystrophies most specifically.
