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.

The Bergy Lectures in Vision Science bring renowned basic scientists to lecture at the UW Medicine Eye Institute, and share research advances with our scientists, clinicians and students. This lecture series was established through a generous gift from Ms. Joan Bergy. Read Joan and Gordon Bergy’s story.
