Sylvia Stinson-Perez (OIB-TAC at the NRTC - Mississippi State University - Starkville, MS)

Scientist, Dr. Saumil Sethna, of the Retinal Discovery Group, in South San Francisco, California, discusses how the CIB2 protein and a group of proteins collectively called mTORC1 are factors in mice in the photoreceptor recycling process.  If that process is faulty, blindness can result.

Then, Sylvia Stinson-Perez, director of the Older Individuals Who Are Blind Technical Assistance Center at the NRTC at Mississippi State University goes over the purpose and activities of the center and the "Time To Be Bold" campaign, which is designed to make those, who are blind and visually impaired, aware of free services available in their respective states.
