Room At Janelia Farm


I travelled to Janelia Farm last week for a Lasker Foundation / International Retinal Research Foundation meeting to discuss where we are with retinal vision rescue approaches.  I had no idea how beautiful the Janelia campus was as this was my first visit and this view, the view from my bedroom was the first real moment where the simple, sparse beauty of the place hit me.

There was not much time to spend in this beautiful room, but it was a remarkable window with which to wake up to as the sun came up.

I’ll have many more images of the Janelia Farms campus and research labs soon…  It is an amazing place.

  3. Thanks for this. Where did you get breakfast and is there someone on “check in” and a safe to keep your belongings ? Thanks for this.

  2. […] What can I say?  This place, Janelia Farm is amazing.  I traveled out here a couple weeks ago to attend a meeting for the Lasker Foundation to discuss where we are with retinal vision rescue approaches.  It really did feel like walking into an alternate universe in some respects.  From the moment I passed through the gates, it was clear the grounds are beautiful, but my mind was kinda blown when checking in to my room.  I was told that the room I would be staying in at night would be on the ground floor which did not mean much to me until I walked through the door and saw this.
