Biologists use 'mini retinas' to better understand connection between eye and brain

IUPUI biologists are growing 'mini retinas' in the lab from stem cells to mimic the growth of the human retina.

The researchers hope to use the research to restore sight when critical connections between the eye and the brain are damaged. These models also allow the researchers to better understand how cells in the retina develop and are organized. These results are published online in Scientific Reports.
