Barry L. Burgess
Lab Manager


I started my research career at Stein Eye in 1983 and have studied photoreceptor/RPE interactions mediated by protein S/Gas6 and MFG-E8.  I am also interested in modeling the development of metastatic potentiation of uveal melanomas through the production of human tumor-derived cell lines from primary and metastatic lesions.  I joined the Williams Lab in 2012 to study human stem cell-derived RPE disease models and to serve as Lab Manager for the lab’s active research program.
