Lynda Wright has worked as a scientist in the laboratory of David Gamm at the UW Waisman Center. The research centers on the use of human embryonic and induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs) to define molecular mechanisms of retinal cell fate determination and differentiation, to develop models of retinal diseases processes in vitro from patient-derived iPSCs, and to apply this knowledge to the study and treatment of human development and degenerative retinal disorders.
