Please join us for a research seminar by Will Spencer, PhD

Please join us for a research seminar on March 17 from 4pm-5pm by Will Spencer, PhD for his presentation entitled, “From Building Ciliary Light Sensor to Extracellular Vesicle Release and Retinal Disease.”

Dr. Spencer is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Ophthalmology at Duke University. He studies the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying vertebrate vision and retinal disease and hopes to understand how the light-sensitive membranes of photoreceptor cells are built, how blindness-causing defects in this process can lead to the release of these membranes as extracellular vesicles, and how the retina’s immune system responds to this pathology.
