Image of the Month
This image by David Gamm shows a retina organoid, which mimics the structure and function of the human retina, allowing it to serve both as a platform for the study of disease mechanisms and new therapeutics, but also as a source of cells for transplantation. Gamm’s group uses a variety of stem and progenitor cells in their research to study retinogenesis and retinal degenerative diseases. In September 2017, Gamm and his group’s work was recognized by the National Eye Institute (NEI) as part of their 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge (3-D ROC) with an honorable mention.
