Computer Modeling May Improve Understanding of Glaucoma

American Physiological Society (APS)

A new mathematical model may help doctors learn more about the risk factors and causes of glaucoma, including the mechanisms affecting blood flow to the eye. The research will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS) Conference: Interface of Mathematical Models and Experimental Biology: Role of the Microvasculature in Scottsdale, Ariz.

World’s largest optical lens shipped to SLAC

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

When the world’s newest telescope starts imaging the Southern sky in 2023, it will take photos using optical assemblies designed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers and built by Lab industrial partners. A key feature of the camera’s optical assemblies for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, under construction in northern Chile, will be its three lenses.

Lowy Medical Research Institute Scientists Find Cause of Debilitating Eye Disease

Lowy Medical Research Institute

Scientists at the Lowy Medical Research Institute (LMRI) have discovered one cause of a progressive, debilitating eye disease called macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel). The work, using genetic, clinical and biochemical studies has implications for other retinal eye diseases, as well as peripheral neuropathies.
