Description: Dyer is chair of the Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. He studies factors that influence and coordinate early cellular development. Specifically, he investigates how cells in the developing light-sensing retina proliferate and organize into cellular subtypes. His objective is to understand the causes of eye cancers such as retinoblastoma and degenerative eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration.

Dyer will discuss how stress and injury affect the eye’s susceptibility to cancer and degeneration.

The NEI AGI Seminar Series in Regenerative Medicine explores topics relevant to regenerative neuroscience and medicine, with special emphasis on the visual system. For more information about the series, visit https://nei.nih.gov/audacious.
