William Grimes


Dr. Grimes received his B.A. from Monmouth College in 2003, and his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 2008, where he studied synaptic transmission and dendritic integration in the mammalian retina with Jeffrey Diamond. During his postdoctoral training with Dr. Fred Rieke at the University of Washington, Dr. Grimes studied the neural basis of retinal computation and human perception under intermediate lighting conditions. Dr. Grimes joined NINDS as a Staff Scientist in 2017, and is currently focused on the functional roles of retinal interneurons in healthy and diseased mammals.
