By gathering representatives from the academic, industry, government, hospital, and nonprofit sectors, the Roundtable for Researchers is unearthing existing studies in discovery and clinical trials. From our explorations, it is clear that regional researchers are commonly partnering with national and international collaborators who may participate virtually.

By developing valuable discussions across the many silos of biomedical research, this group is informing future programs that can enhance awareness of the region’s significance.

Glen Prusky, Ph.D., is a distinguished professor and researcher focused on understanding the nature of adaptive change in the nervous system in animals, and applying the insights to the treatment of visual dysfunction in humans. His basic research program utilizes the rodent visual system as an experimental model, with anatomical, biochemical, electrophysiological, and behavioral methods as output measures.

Eileen Geoghegan, Ph.D., is an experienced researcher and a member of WBP’s Scientific Advisory Board. She is a Johns Hopkins University and National Institutes of Health trained scientist with a demonstrated ability to design, construct, and evaluate novel recombinant antibody-based therapeutics.
