As part of my visit to the National Eye Institute, I had the opportunity to spend lots of time with my colleague Robert Fariss who helped work to coordinate the visit.  I owe a tremendous amount to Bob as his work with Ann Milam in the late 1990s was the initial hint to us as to what was going with retinas as they underwent retinal degeneration.  That work helped inform and refine our understanding of the whole concept of retinal remodeling.  It’s funny how life is circular and people will come into your life again and again, influencing us in various ways, and it is something that I am grateful for.

Thank you Bob, as always. And I look forward to more conversations.
