research

Join the UW-Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences for a virtual installment of our time-honored tradition of Learner’s Day! The event celebrates our learning community and will feature podium presentations and posters from medical students, T32 vision research trainees, graduate students, residents, and clinical fellows. This year our presenters come from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital, New Delhi, India; University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines; and the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin. Thank you to all our presenters.

This year’s 2021 Learners Day Program offers a diversity of research topics, presenters, moderators and engages in various learning experiences and formats.

Please explore the variety of presentations and we invite you to review the pre-recorded poster presentations via Box in advance of the meeting to choose a block of topics that you would like to discuss with the presenters in a small group by joining two different breakout rooms of your choice.

Passcode: 291740

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Rachel Wong, PHD, professor, Chair of the Department of Biological Structure, University of Washington in Seattle, WA

“Mechanisms Underlying Synaptic Wiring Specificity in the Vertebrate Retina”

Dr. Wong’s laboratory is currently investigating the cellular mechanisms and developmental strategies that establish excitatory and inhibitory circuits in the mammalian retina. By taking advantage of the zebrafish’s capacity to regenerate neurons, they are also determining how newly-generated neurons integrate into existing circuitry.

 

FEATURED SPEAKERS:

  • Matt Veldman, PhDMatthew Veldman, PhD, Assistant Professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy at the Medical College of Wisconsin: “Ganglion cell intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms of successful optic nerve regeneration”
      • Our initial focus is on applying modern molecular biological methods (such as CRISPR-Cas9, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, etc.) to study the cell intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms of successful optic nerve regeneration in the zebrafish visual system and compare these mechanisms to those in mammals, which fail to regenerate and suffer from degeneration.

 

  • Cuervo-GrajalHenar Cuervo Grajal, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology and Biostatistics at the University of Illinois: “Notch signaling in pericytes”
      • The Cuervo lab utilizes a combination of transgenic mouse models and in vitro methods to delineate the role of perivascular cells in developmental and pathological settings. Particularly, we are interested in the function of Notch signaling in pericytes in arteriovenous malformations, diabetic retinopathy, neurodegenerative diseases, fibrosis, and tumor angiogenesis.
