Oakland University Research Team Probes Molecular Basis for Healthy Vision

By discovering how normal rod and cone structures are achieved, researchers are laying the groundwork for development of treatments that could be deployed much earlier in disease progression. If you’re reading this, thank your rods and cones – the millions of nerve cells that absorb light and allow you to see. These photoreceptors live in your retina, at the back of your eye, and they have a very distinct shape – without which healthy vision is impossible. Andrew Goldberg, Reddy … [Read more...]
