Gamm Team Recognized in NEI’s 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge

A team of McPherson ERI scientists headed by Dr. David Gamm was recognized by the National Eye Institute as part of an initiative aimed at improving the production of human 3D retina structures grown from stem cells, a technology developed using human cells by McPherson ERI Director and lead investigator David Gamm.  The UW-Madison team, which included researchers from the departments of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences (David Gamm and Nader Sheibani), Biomedical Engineering (William Murphy and Melissa Skala) and Pediatrics (Bikash Pattnaik and Christine Sorenson), proposed to incorporate a stem-cell derived microvascular network into the retinal structures. Read the full article here.
