Camera: Leica Monochrom
Focal Length: 50mm
My friend and colleague Samer Hattar (@shattar0429) came by this week to visit, give a talk at the Moran Eye Center, and discuss science collaborations. When I first met samer, back in 2002 when he presented his work on intrinsically photosensitive ganglion cells. It 1) blew my mind and 2) I did not believe him. Well, it still blows my mind and I was totally wrong. We now know that melanopsin ganglion cells are a critical part of retinal and circadian infrastructure and I have to say this storyline in science has been both wonderful and informative to watch.
