  1. Metabolic Changes Associated With Müller Cells In A Transgenic Rabbit Model Of Retinal Degeneration

    This abstract was presented today at the 2014 Association for Research in Vision and Opthalmology (ARVO) meetings in Orlando, Florida by  Rebecca L. Pfeiffer, Bryan W. Jones and Robert E. Marc. Purpose: Müller cells play a central role in retinal metabolism via the glutamate cycle. During retinal degeneration Müller cells are among the first to demonstrate changes, reflected […]

  2. Abstract Human Retina

    This image of ganglion cells, Müller cells and starburst amacrine cells in the human retina is from a patient suffering from retinitis pigmentosa (RP).  This disease this patient suffered from slowly causes people affected with this disease to go blind and is a constant reminder to me of why we engage in our research. For some, this is a pretty, […]

  3. Activated Müller Glia

    Friend of Webvision, Peter Westenskow in the Friedlander Laboratory sent us this beautiful image of activated Müller glia in a stressed mouse eye.  You can see the scar in the photoreceptor layer towards the top of the image.  The mouse line is VLDLR -/-.  These mice exhibit aberrant neovascular tufts that invade the ONL and eventually […]
