Lymphatic research represents an explosive field of new discovery in recent years. The cornea provides an ideal tissue for lymphatic research due to its accessible location, transparent nature, and lymphatic-free but-inducible features. Once induced, corneal lymphatic vessels enhance high volume delivery of antigens and immune cells, and accelerate disease progression and transplant rejection. Our research goal is to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of lymphangiogenesis and to identify new targets for therapeutic intervention. This presentation is to introduce our recent data on corneal lymphatic research and to provide novel insights into corneal lymphangiogenesis, a multi-facet event associated with the pathogenesis of many diseases after an inflammatory, infectious, immunogenic, traumatic, or chemical insult.
