Dec 4 First Friday Bioscience – I See the Light: A Novel Retinal therapeutic Implant that stimulates retinal function and …


Full Title: A Novel therapeutic Implant to stimulate retinal function and restore vision.

Description

Dr. Nicole Wagner will discuss LambdaVision’s protein-based retinal implant, which is intended to treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Current treatments only slow disease progression, while Lambdavision’s technology uses the light-activated protein bacteriorhodopsin to stimulate the retina – restoring high-resolution vision.

Nicole L. Wagner, PhD. President and CEO, LambdaVision

Dr. Wagner joined LambdaVision as CEO in 2011. She earned her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology at UConn, spending the majority of her graduate career working on optimizing retinal-containing proteins for application in medical devices. Wagner played an integral role in proof-of-concept studies demonstrating the use of site-directed mutagenesis, site-specific saturation mutagenesis, and directed evolution, and was able to genetically engineer the protein bacteriorhodopsin for application in a retinal prosthesis. In 2012, Dr. Wagner received the Connecticut Technology Council’s Women of Innovation “Collegian Innovation and Leadership Award” for her work with LambdaVision, and most recently was listed as one of CT Magazine’s 40 under 40 for the class of 2015.
