The program features Dr. David Gamm, Director of the McPherson ERI, whose stem cell lab at UW-Madison is developing potentially groundbreaking photoreceptor replacement therapies for RP and other disorders; and Vision Services staff from the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired, who discuss adaptations to living with RP and vision loss until new therapies become available.
