A Second Chance at Sight

David Lin, a junior majoring in electrical engineering, has been working on improving retinal implants that could help restore sight to people who suffer from visual diseases like macular degeneration.
 
In the lab of Yu-Chong Tai, Caltech's Anna L. Rosen Professor of Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, the Andrew and Peggy Cherng Medical Engineering Leadership Chair, Lin has helped develop gold and platinum electrodes for the implants.
