Early Vision Development, Retinal Organoids, Calcified Nodules In Retina, Late Stage Progression In Macular Degeneration

Dr. Bob Johnston (Johns Hopkins University - Baltimore, MD)

Kiara Eldred (Johns Hopkins University - Baltimore, MD)
Dr. Christine Curcio (University of Alabama at Birmingham)

Dr. Bob Johnston and Kiara Eldred of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore explain how studying lab-grown retinal organoids has shed light on varying thyroid hormone levels have an effect on how different cone photoreceptors develop.

Then, the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Dr. Christine Curcio discusses a study that shows calcified nodules in the retina could be a sign of later progression of age-related macular degeneration.
