Kolb To Give Pittman Lecture, May 29
Dr. Helga E. Kolb, professor in the department of ophthalmology and visual sciences at the John Moran Eye Center, University of Utah in Salt Lake City, will deliver the annual Margaret Pittman Lecture (which had to be postponed from last October) on Wednesday, May 29 at 3 p.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10.
Dr. Helga E. Kolb
Kolb has made valuable contributions to understanding the complex circuitry of the retina. She began her career in eye research with Dr. Geoffrey Arden at the Institute of Ophthalmology, London, in November 1961. In 1966, she came to the United States to work at the Wilmer Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. From 1971 through 1979, she was a visiting scientist at NEI and then moved on to NINDS where she continued studying the functional neurocircuitry of the vertebrate retina. In 1979, Kolb moved to the University of Utah to expand her research opportunities and to work with many collaborators from Europe, Israel and China.
The lecture is being hosted by NEI. For more information or reasonable accommodation, call Hilda Madine at 594-5595.
