Bringing Sight to the Blind

Neuroscientist Sheila Nirenberg’s mission is to work toward an affordable prosthetic eye for people suffering from eye diseases. Having decoded the neural communication that translates light received by the retina into the images we see, she is developing an artificial retina that could help millions of people. Her prosthetic retina doesn’t require surgery, and is a combination of gene therapy and a wearable device.
