Scripps Research Magazine published a recent conversation with Anne Hanneken, an outstanding physician scientist, teacher, and woman of indomitable spirit. Anne has devoted her career to vision research and improving the life of people with macular degeneration. Read about her discovery that light sensing cells in the retina can be revived after death, published earlier this year in Nature. This work has significant implications for the understanding of the human central nervous system and providing new avenues for visual rehabilitation. Congratulations ANNE!!
