   “Assessing a New Treatment for Age-Related Macular Degeneration”

 

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, results from a still-incurable disease process that causes dysfunction in the retina.  Although only a small area is typically affected, there is great impact on vision:  patients experience a blind spot wherever they look, leading to an inability to read, drive, recognize faces and discern objects as the disease progresses.  A promising new treatment uses gentle laser light to reshape the cornea, bending light rays away from diseased areas of the retina and onto healthy areas.  This redirection of light causes an immediate improvement in vision, and generates ongoing improvement due to neuroadaptation.  Dr. Mallen, an ophthalmologist, will discuss the disease from a clinical perspective; Prof. Berry, a neuroscientist, will explain the basic vision science underlying the treatment; and the Rev. John Frederick, who’s had the procedure in both eyes, will provide a patient’s perspective.

6 P, TUESDAY, November 13th, 2018

 

Speaker:  José Avalos, Universidad Iberoamericana ’96

Assistant Professor, Chemical & Biological Engineering
The Andlinger Center, Princeton University

 

   “Engineering Microbes to Sustain Planet Earth”

Advances in synthetic biology, such as the development of engineered metabolisms, biosensors and genetic circuits, have revolutionized mankind’s ability to monitor and control cellular functions in the manufacture of chemicals and materials.  With these new tools, previously unsolvable problems in energy, the environment, industry and sustainability, can now be addressed. Following years of study at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Rockefeller, MIT and the Whitehead Institute, José Avalos is well-positioned to take us into the world of microbial engineering.  He will explain how it is transforming production of:  the chemicals we use; the fuels we burn; the clothes we wear; the food we eat; and the materials we employ.
