For those who suffer from retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration and glaucoma, team members at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are looking toward beginning human trials for stem cell grown retinal cells which may cure the blindness caused by these diseases. The team showed the lab grown cells making successful connections and sensing changes in light wave intensity. 

This is certainly great news, and it is great to see the team making progress after more than a decade working on this project.
