A team of scientists led by David Gamm, assistant professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences, and Jason Meyer, research scientist, has successfully grown multiple types of retina cells from two types of stem cells — suggesting a future in which damaged retinas could be repaired by cells grown from the patient’s own skin.
