Dr. Andrew D. Huberman will present “Visual restoration: bridges and gaps to curing blindness in humans,” part of the National Eye Institute Audacious Goals Initiative (AGI) Seminar Series in Neuroregeneration, Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 3 p.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10.

Huberman is an associate professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, departments of neurobiology and ophthalmology, and a faculty member of Bio-X, Stanford’s interdisciplinary biosciences program. His seminar will summarize strategies for neuroregeneration of the visual system, reveal what scientists have learned by studying organisms with robust regenerative capacity and describe how medicine is applying this knowledge to some day reverse vision loss
in humans.

The NEI AGI Seminar Series in Neuroregeneration explores topics relevant to regenerative neuroscience and medicine, with special emphasis on the visual system. For more information about the series, visit
