Peter Lukasiewicz: “EAAT5 glutamate transporter function in the vertebrate retina”
Greg Perrin: “Gain control at retinal bipolar cell synapses”
Richard Kramer: “Reversing physiological remodeling of the retina to rescue vision in degenerative blindness”
2021 Ribbon Synapses Seminar Series
Join us for a unique seminar series to learn more about the specialized sensory synapses that afford unique signal processing abilities to the auditory and visual systems.
The Ribbon Synapses Seminar Series is being held virtually for the first time this year, in lieu of the biannual in-person Ribbon Synapses Symposium held in Goettingen, Germany since 2003.
Session 9, July 22:
10am – Peter Lukasiewicz (WashU Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences) “EAAT5 glutamate transporter function in the vertebrate retina”
11am – Greg Perrin (University of Maryland) “Gain control at retinal bipolar cell synapses”
11:25am – Richard Kramer (University of California, Berkeley) “Reversing physiological remodeling of the retina to rescue vision in degenerative blindness”
