MERI-at-a-Glance Highlights the Range of McPherson ERI Research Interests
February 2016On Friday, February 19th, MERI-at-a-Glance successfully took place at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID), with eight short research talks. From cataracts and glaucoma, viral gene delivery to therapeutic stem cell interventions, and computational optics to toddlers and TV: vision research conducted by McPherson ERI members across campus was shared, networking took place, and new connections were made. Attendance was great!
