Researchers use advanced autofluorescent imaging techniques on retinal organoids (edited composite image seen here) to better understand how photoreceptors in the eye function.

In order to tap the tremendous potential of CRISPR gene editing technology for reversing human disease, Wisconsin scientists are working with a star pupil.

The human eye — though one of the body’s most complex and intricate structures — happens to be an ideal early candidate for treatments that incorporate CRISPR, the Nobel Prize-winning tool that may help precisely target and alter sequences of DNA associated with disease.
