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.

Dr. Prusky 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.

Dr. Dupuy is passionate about personalized and applied genomics for human health and medicine. She has specialized experience with next-generation sequencing of oncologic RNA fusions and fungal metagenomics/taxonomy work for microbiome studies. Her Ph.D. is in Genetics and Genomics, which she obtained from UConn in Summer 2015.
