You are invited to a special Research Colloquium for a glaucoma research faculty candidate in the UW-Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.

When: Thursday, August 30 from 3:30pm – 4:30pm

Where: Health Sciences Learning Center, 750 Highland Avenue, Room 1309

Who: Colleen McDowell, PhD, Assistant Professor at the North Texas Eye Research Institute at the University of North Texas Health Science Center

Presentation Title: “Cross-talk of TGFβ2 and TLR4 Pathways in the Trabecular Meshwork”

Dr. McDowell is currently an assistant professor at the North Texas Eye Research Institute at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, TX. Her research is focused on studying a novel molecular pathway, TGFβ2 – TLR4 signaling crosstalk, in the development of elevated intraocular pressure and glaucomatous trabecular meshwork damage. In addition, Dr. McDowell studies retina ganglion cell subtype specific cell death in mouse models of glaucoma using mice that express GFP in specific individual subtypes of retina ganglion cells.
