Jason Meyer, PhD, BA

Associate Professor of Biology, School of Science


Dr. Meyer received his bachelor’s degree from Colgate University and his doctoral degree from the University of Missouri. He completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Wisconsin and was later promoted to the rank of assistant scientist, where he developed the foundational ability to differentiate human pluripotent stem cells into retinal neurons. Since August of 2010, Dr. Meyer has established his research program at IUPUI focused upon the mechanisms underlying the specification and maturation of individual cell types of the retina, with a particular focus upon photoreceptors and retinal ganglion cells. Additionally, Dr. Meyer’s research group is interested in the ability to study features of retinal disease through the use of patient-specific stem cells.
