Dr. Rebecca Pfeiffer Awarded RPB Career Development Award

Dr. Rebecca Pfeiffer from our team has just been awarded a Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) Career Development Award to explore how Müller glia interact with synapses at the network level. We are so incredibly proud of her and are looking forward to seeing where her science develops as a result of this award. Our immense gratitude to RPB for all of their support over the years as without them, the science that comes out of this laboratory would not be possible.
