About the Speaker:
Felice Dunn, Ph.D.
Bio: Felice Dunn is an Associate Professor at UC San Francisco.  She began her studies in neuroscience as an undergraduate at Brown University where she worked with David Berson in the discovery of intrinsically photosensitive ganglion cells. She then continued her studies in vision at the University of Washington with Fred Rieke as a graduate student and with Rachel Wong as a postdoctoral fellow. With Fred Rieke, she examined retinal gain controls that enable vision across a broad range of mean light levels. With Rachel Wong, she uncovered developmental patterns of synapse formation. In between, she studied the fidelity of olfactory processing at the NIH with Mark Stopfer. Currently at UCSF, her lab examines the structural and functional effects of photoreceptor loss.
