About this lecture:

October 10, 2013, in the Main Reading Room of the Linda Hall Library.

Dr. Jay Neitz, Bishop Professor of Ophthalmology and Color Vision Researcher, University of Washington.

Jay Neitz’s goal in life is to cure colorblindness. Working alongside his wife, Maureen, he seeks to understand how the human visual system operates by studying the entire process of seeing, from genes to behavior. He will explore how and why we see color, the evolution of color vision, and experiments using gene therapy with primates as a potential treatment for human vision disorders.
