Using Retinal Stem Cells to Restore Vision

Here’s a great video explaining how retinal stem cells (aka retinal precursor cells) are used to restore vision:

Retinal precursor cells are biological cells that differentiate into the various cell types of the retina during development. In the vertebrate, these retinal cells differentiate into seven cell types, including retinal ganglion cells,amacrine cells, bipolar cells, horizontal cells, rod photoreceptors, cone photoreceptors, and Müller glia cells. This is just one of the #InspiredResearch projects funded by a MLERFi grant that is leading to #SightSavingCures.
