Dr. Nathans began working on human vision during his graduate studies. After postdoctoral training at Genentech, Dr. Nathans joined the faculty at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He holds appointments in the Departments of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Neuroscience, and Ophthalmology. The principal research interests of the Nathans lab center on two areas: the structure and function of the vertebrate visual system; and the origins of pattern formation in development.
