Researchers develop synthetic soft retina offering hope to visually impaired people

Researchers develop synthetic soft retina offering hope to visually impaired people

The researchers believe that the study could lead to development of new, less invasive technologies that more closely resemble human body tissues, helping to treat degenerative eye conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa.

First synthetic retina created for visually impaired

3D 'mini-retinas' grown from human stem cells

Stem cell biologists have been working to understand the regeneration of neurons from lower vertebrates to humans, which can aid regenerative medicine in more indirect ways.

Soon, drugs to halt accelerated onset of diabetic eye disease

A team of researchers has identified a candidate biomarker of accelerated onset diabetic retinopathy, bringing new therapies closer to reality.

In a first, retinal nerve cells grown in lab

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have developed a method to efficiently turn human stem cells into retinal nerve cells that transmit visual signals from the eye to the brain.
