Dr. Christy Sheehy wins People's Choice and 2nd Place in 2017 UCSF Postdoc Slam

Dr. Christy Sheehy, a postdoc in the Green lab, presented a 3-minute recap of her current research at the 2017 UCSF Postdoc Slam.  Dr. Sheehy built a device called the Tracking Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (TSLO), which can be used to track microscopic eye movements the size of 1/100th of a human hair.  She uses the TSLO in the Green lab to track retinal motion in patient populations with multiple sclerosis, dementia, Alzheimers, and concussion.  The device has already shown promising results for early detection and sensitive tracking of disease activity. Dr. Sheehy won the audience-awarded People's Choice prize, and placed 2nd overall among 10 finalist postdocs.
