At the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, his research focused on cataracts, conducting both gene regulation and high-throughput gene expression analyses. While at the nationally leading Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation, he focused on development of eye tissues important in understanding congenital ocular diseases, where he primarily utilized transgenic mouse models of eye disease with state of the art imaging devices to probe the molecular and cellular biology of anterior ocular diseases. Dr. Chauhan worked at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh to translate his basic research to the bedside by primarily performing studies on human tissues.
