In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Cebulla is actively engaged in both basic and clinical. The focus of Dr. Cebulla's lab is translational research on retinal detachments and uveal melanoma. Also, a collaborative group with Dr. Cebulla, Dr. Mohammed Abdel-Rahman and Dr. Frederick Davidorf has identified that over 10% of patients with uveal melanoma have a heritable cancer syndrome. They are working hard to identify the genes responsible for increased cancer in the family and have identified a new cancer syndrome due to mutation in the BAP1 gene. They are currently involved in understanding factors which influence survival with metastatic disease and on targeted therapy for melanoma.
