Description

2019 PIMS Public Lecture: Erika Camacho, Arizona State University

Using mathematics to help end blindness

Computer (in silico) experiments in this area have given researchers invaluable insights and in some cases re-directed experimental research and theory. With mathematics and in silico experiments we will explore the experimentally observed photoreceptor death and rescue in retinal degeneration and provide a framework for future physiological investigations and potential ways to circumvent blindness.

This lecture is part of the 2019 Diversity in Mathematics Summer School.
