• Working Toward a Cure for a Rare Eye Condition

    21-year-old Sean Dougherty has cone dystrophy, a condition that deteriorates his vision and makes his eyes extremely sensitive to light. Tiffany Cook, PhD, a researcher at Cincinnati Children's, is working toward a cure for the disease. In the lab, that research includes studying flies to better understand how vision works. But meeting Sean, Cook says, gives her tremendous insight into what she's doing and how she might be able to help.
