On the first Tuesday of every month, the Foundation Fighting Blindness sends out our e-newsletter featuring the latest and most exciting research breakthroughs.
Soon after each e-newsletter, our very own Director of Research and Education, Dr. Mary Sunderland, takes to our Facebook page to do a live broadcast discussion of the articles featured in the e-newsletter, and to answer your questions.
Earlier this month, we sent out an e-news featuring the following three stories:
- CRISPR Breakthrough: Restoring Vision by Reprogramming Cells
- Barbara Embodies the Fight Against Blindness
- Clinician-Scientist Emerging Leader Award: Dr. Brian Ballios
Take a quick read of each, and then watch a replay of Dr. Mary Sunderland’s latest live broadcast in which she discussed highlights from these stories. We were lucky this month to be joined by esteemed researcher, Dr. Brian Ballios, who shared incredible insights into his own research and vision science on a whole, as well as some stories from the recent ARVO (The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology) conference both he and Mary attended.
