Cardiff Scientific Society: Repairing the Retina? The How and the Why
06/12/2017, 19:00 - 20:00
Members only but membership can be bought at the event (£15 adults, free under-18s)
Speaker: Professor James Morgan (Cardiff University)
Professor Morgan will talk about retinal degeneration in a common eye disease, glaucoma. How this can be imaged using state of the art laser based imaging methods and how we can repair the damage. He will touch on how the eye, and in particular the retina, can be used as model to study neural repair. The eye is widely regarded as a ‘window on the brain’ and our research in glaucoma has relevance to other chronic neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers disease.
