Giblin gives first talk in new endowed lecture series

Frank Giblin, PhD, had the honor of giving the first lecture in the newly created Clifford V. and Drusilla R. Harding Eye Research and Biology Endowed Lecture Series at Oakland University last week. The lecture series was endowed by the Harding’s children to honor their parents, two leaders in the science community at Oakland University. Giblin, professor of biomedical sciences and director of Oakland's Eye Research Institute, discussed the structure and function of the ocular lens. His talk included the many contributions Dr. Clifford Harding Jr. contributed to lens research.

“Our goal is to honor my parents’ accomplishments at OU with an annual event that enriches the academic experience by bringing in someone who is working in a research area that is relevant to both the Biology Department and the Eye Research Institute, our parents’ legacies,” says Clifford Harding III, the couple’s son.

Giblin, who knew Dr. Harding as a lens research colleague, has conducted NIH-funded metabolic and biochemical studies on the lens and cataract at Oakland University for 40 years. He is particularly interested in the possible role of oxidative and free radical processes in the formation of nuclear cataract. He also investigates unusually active antioxidant mechanisms present in the epithelium of the lens that help to keep the tissue transparent.
