  1. Seminar: Jiang Li, Intraflagellar Transport (IFT) Essential For Photoreceptor Connecting Cilium/Axoneme Formation and Maintenance

    Jiang Li will be delivering a seminar, Intraflagellar Transport (IFT) Essential For Photoreceptor Connecting Cilium/Axoneme Formation and Maintenance on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 in the John A. Moran Eye Center auditorium.   Abstract: A light-sensitive photoreceptor outer segment (OS) is a modified primary cilium and communicates with the inner segment (IS) through a “connecting cilium” (CC), a structure […]
