Neuroscience & Non-Communicable Diseases Seminar Series

Speaker: Dr Morven Cameron (Western Sydney University)

Dr. Morven Cameron completed her PhD on circadian rhythms in the mammalian retina in the lab of Prof. Rob Lucas at Manchester University before moving to Australia in 2009. She then briefly worked on cultured peripheral neurons in the lab of Prof. Janet Keast where she learned patch clamp electrophysiology. In 2010, she returned to work in retinal research for Bionic Vision Australia, assessing the responses of retinal cells to electrical stimulation.

After being awarded the ARC DECRA in 2013, Morven has established herself as an independent researcher at Western Sydney, focusing on the mammalian retinal physiology. Over the last few years Morven has concentrated on light-induced dopamine release in the retina, and its effects on light adaptation.

All welcome. Drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
