AGI Seminar: scRNA-Seq and scATAC-Seq for Retinal Regeneration

The National Eye Institute (NEI) invites you to "Use of scRNA-Seq and scATAC-Seq to examine fundamental questions in retinal regeneration" by Dr. David R. Hyde, Ph.D., as part of the Audacious Goals Initiative (AGI) Seminar Series in Neuroregeneration.

The AGI for Regenerative Medicine in Vision is a strategic endeavor by NEI to expand support aimed at new treatments for vision disorders. By facilitating cross-disciplinary research, the AGI is tackling devastating and difficult-to-treat eye diseases.

April 13, 2022 from 3:00-4:00p ET

David R. Hyde, Ph.D.

Dr. Hyde received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Michigan State University in 1980 and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics from Pennsylvania State University in 1985. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Dr. Seymour Benzer at California Institute of Technology from 1985-1988, where he was involved in isolating 436 unique cDNAs that correspond to genes expressed in the adult Drosophila head. He went to the University of Notre Dame as an Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences in 1988 to study aspects of retinal development, function, and degeneration in Drosophila. He was promoted with tenure in 1995 and moved his lab’s model system from the fruit fly to zebrafish. He was promoted to Full Professor in 2000, was named the Rev. Howard J. Kenna Director of the Center for Zebrafish Research in 2001, and was named the Director of the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in 2014. Over the years, he received several teaching awards at Notre Dame.

Dr. Hyde's lab has been studying aspects of retinal development and regeneration in the adult zebrafish retina since 1995. Several years ago, they initiated a collaboration to use single-cell transcriptomics and epigenomics to explore various fundamental questions in Muller glia-dependent neuronal regeneration.
