NLM ADA Lovelace Lecture: Tackling Diabetic Retinopathy in a Safety Net Healthcare Setting with Telehealth and Machine Learning
NLM ADA Lovelace Lecture Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working age adults in the United States. It is challenging to address in both rural and urban underserved settings, which suffer from shortages of eye specialists. This talk will describe the approach taken to address this condition in a medically underserved area (South Los Angeles) by researchers in the Center for Biomedical Informatics at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, using telehealth and machine learning on data from patient electronic health records. Omolola Ogunyemi, PhD, FACMI is the Director of Charles R. Drew U...

Sayer Vision Research Lecture: Translating RPE Biology into Disease Treatments using iPS Cells
12th Sayer Vision Research Lecture Dr. Bharti's laboratory developed and functionally validated in vitro models of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE). The RPE cells, matured on a biodegradable scaffold, formed a functional monolayer patch. The FDA recently approved a phase I/IIa safety and feasibility clinical trial to test an autologous iPSC-RPE patch in patients with the geographic atrophy form of age-related macular degeneration.Air date: 4/21/2020 11:00:00 AM (Source: Videocast - All Events)

NEI Sayer Lecture: Clinical features and molecular basis of the cerebellar-retinal degenerative disorder SpinoCerebellar Ataxia type 7: From mechanism to therapy
NEI Sayer Lecture Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7) is an inherited neurological disorder characterized by cerebellar and retinal degeneration. SCA7 patients develop atrophy of the cerebellar cortex and the brainstem, and exhibit extensive loss of cerebellar Purkinje cells. An important feature of SCA7, that allows it to be distinguished from the 40+ other SCAs, is retinal degeneration. Full field electroretinograms of SCA7 patients reveal marked dysfunction of cone photoreceptor cells prior to rod photoreceptor abnormalities, establishing SCA7 as a cone-rod dystrophy. As retinal disease progresses, rod photoreceptors b...

NEI AGI Seminar in Regenerative Medicine: Cellular Pliancy in Retinal Development and Disease
Dyer is chair of the Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children ’ s Research Hospital and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. He studies factors that influence and coordinate early cellular development. Specifically, he investigates how cells in the developing light-sensing retina proliferate and organize into cellular subtypes. His objective is to understand the causes of eye cancers such as retinoblastoma and degenerative eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. Dyer will discuss how stress and injury affect the eye ’ s susceptibility to cancer and degeneration. The NEI AG...

Living in the Cold -- Adaptations in Hibernation
NIH Neuroscience Series Seminar Dr. Li ’ s lab studies the structure and function of retinal synapses and circuits. Although they know the basic structure and major cell types of the retina, it remains much of a " black box " in terms of the connections and functions of these neurons. Their long-term research goal is to understand how the neuronal circuits are wired in this " black box " under normal conditions and how the circuits are altered during pathological processes. Both pieces of information will be crucial for the design of biological and/or prosthetic interventions aiming to restore vision in many types of bli...
