Today, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) remains a leading cause of blindness in developed countries—affecting more than 15 million in the United States alone.
This October, vision scientists and researchers from related fields will come together to discuss the latest topics in AMD research, ranging from novel biomarkers and vascular pathogenesis to inflammation. The goal of this symposium is to propel innovative AMD research that will ultimately eradicate this blinding disease
The event is hosted by the Harvard Ophthalmology AMD Center of Excellence and presented in partnership with the 3rd Biennial International Symposium on Ocular Regeneration.
