Dr. Sobrin has a clinical focus on retinal diseases and posterior uveitis and a research focus on identifying genes associated with polygenic ophthalmic diseases, particularly diabetic retinopathy..She led a candidate gene association study of diabetic retinopathy within the Candidate gene Association Resource (CARe), which included patients from several large population-based cohorts as well as an admixture genetic association study for diabetic retinopathy in African Americans. Currently, she is the principal investigator a multi-ethnic genome-wide association study of diabetic retinopathy. She is also has an interest in ocular disease pharmacogenetics and is chair of the Genetics Committee for the DRCR.net.
