CreativeMornings presents talk by Jay Neiz - "My life goal is to cure color blindness"

Some people see a range of hues that most of us miss out on. Ophthalmologist Jay Neitz says that one day we may all be able to do so. In the meantime, he is on a mission to develop a cure for color blindness.

About the speaker: Jay Neitz received his PhD in Biopsychology from the University of California in Santa Barbara in 1986. His graduate work was conducted in the laboratory of Gerald Jacobs, PhD, and it focused on understanding how the human visual system works using color vision as a model. After graduating in 1986, he continued post-doctoral training in the Jacobs lab and began collaborating with his wife, Maureen Neitz, PhD who was also in the Jacobs lab. In 1991, Jay Neitz took his first faculty position at the Medical College of Wisconsin. After nearly 18 years in Wisconsin, Maureen and Jay Neitz moved their labs to the University of Washington in January of 2009. He is currently the Bishop Professor in Ophthalmology.
