Joan & Gordon Bergy Lecture/Samer Hattar, Hopkins
January 10, 2014, Magnuson Health Sciences Building, Room TBA
Samer Hattar is Associate Professor of Biology at Johns Hopkins University where his current research seeks to clarify the relationship between vision and physiology. Understanding the mode of action of newly identified photo-receptors, and the individual contributions of the rods, cones and these novel photoreceptors in signaling light for non-image-forming...

Jay Neitz featured in New Scientist
Some people see a range of hues most of us miss out on. Jay Neitz says that one day we may all be able to do so. In the meantime, he is on a mission to develop a cure for color blindness. In this intereview, he tells David Hambling why he wants people to see the wider spectrum. Jay answers questions on why he is driven to cure color blindness, how his color blindness tests work, his work with squirrel monkeys and what we can learn from tetrachromats.

State-of-the-art OCT system enables the visualization of detailed microstructures within the retina
Dr. Wang’s laboratory is expert in the technique of optical coherence tomography (OCT). Initially developed at MIT in the 1990’s, OCT is a technique that allows visualization of ocular structures with the resolution of a microscope section, all done non-invasively with invisible, infrared light. OCT has become a highly useful diagnostic technique, used in management of most patients with macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
