MERI-at-a-Glance Draws Vision Researchers from Across the Campus

Dozens of McPherson ERI members, trainees, and colleagues learned more about the breadth of vision research conducted by McPherson ERI members at UW-Madison and other campuses at the most recent MERI-at-a-Glance event, held on February 12th in the DeLuca Forum at WID.  The list of presenters included:

1. Janis Eells, PhD (Biomedical Sciences, UW-Milwaukee)
