Stem cell research reveals detailed genetic roadmap of glaucoma

A new, detailed genetic roadmap of glaucoma—the world's leading cause of irreversible blindness—will help researchers develop new drugs to combat the disease, by identifying potential target areas to stall or reverse ...

Improved retinal transplant technique ready for clinical trials

Researchers led by Michiko Mandai at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) in Japan have used a genetic modification to improve human-derived retina transplants grown in the lab. After transplant into damaged ...

Retina 'hardwired' to predict path of moving objects

Neural circuits in the primate retina can generate the information needed to predict the path of a moving object before visual signals even leave the eye, UW Medicine researchers demonstrate in a new paper.
