Professor Tiffany Schmidt awarded the Karl Kirchgessner Foundation Vision Research Grant

Neurobiology Professor Tiffany Schmidt has been awarded the Karl Kirchgessner Foundation Vision Research Grant.  The Foundation "supports tax exempt institutions located primarily in the Southern California area which are actively engaged in the provision of services in the field of vision."  When asked about how the Foundation's grant will support her research, Professor Schmidt stated, "Our research seeks to understand the neural circuits underlying light driven behavior, and funds from the Karl Kirchgessner Foundation will help us make important steps toward that goal. Understanding these circuits will ultimately aid in the design of better treatments to improve visual function in people with retinal diseases."
