NEI AGI Seminar: Connecting Photoreceptors

NEI Audacious Goals Initiative (AGI) Seminar Series in Neuroregeneration
Dr. Martemyanov, professor and chair, Scripps Florida neuroscience department, is recognized for his contributions to understanding brain function, addiction, and vision. His research examines the fundamental principles that regulate signaling via G protein coupled receptors (GPCR). GPCRs mediate a vast variety of critical biological processes, ranging from proliferation and motility to cellular reception and excitability. Originally from Russia, Dr. Martemyanov completed his fellowship training in molecular mechanisms of ocular diseases at Harvard. He joined Scripps via the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and the University of Minnesota. He has authored more than 100 publications and his patents have been cited thousands of times. Dr. Martemyanov has won several prestigious awards including Cogan Award in Vision Research, the Abel Award in Pharmacology, and the Independent Scientist Award from NIH.
The Audacious Goals Initiative (AGI) for Regenerative Medicine is an effort by the National Eye Institute (NEI) to push the boundaries of vision science and restore vision through regeneration of the retina. By facilitating cross-disciplinary research, we are tackling the most devastating and difficult-to-treat eye diseases. Our audacious goal is to replace cells of the retina that have been damaged by disease or injury and to restore their connections to the visual centers of the brain. Dr. Kirill Martemyanov is the Chair of the Neuroscience Department and Professor on Scripps Florida campus overseeing the broad range of research activities in the area. Dr. Martemyanov's AGI Seminar is titled: "Connecting Photoreceptors"
