    David R. Williams, PhD
    William G. Allyn Professor of Medical Optics & Director of the Center for Visual Science
    University of Rochester

    Location:  Orin Smith Auditorium, SLU C

    Time: Thursday, May 16,  2 - 3 pm

    Title: Functional Imaging and Control of Single Cells in the Living Primate Retina

    Dr. Williams’s group is currently working to create a new retinal imaging tool designed to track changes in structure and function in both the inner and outer retina at cellular resolution in individual animals over time. The tool uses two-photon, adaptive optics imaging of genetically-encoded calcium indicators to track the neuronal responses of individual photoreceptors and ganglion cells in two different animal models.
