The meeting schedule and venue are designed to present the most exciting scientific advances in an atmosphere that encourages informal interactions and collaborations. Specific events will be organized to foster interactions among trainees and senior investigators. All attendees will have the opportunity to present a poster, and additional recreational activities will be available to all participants to foster the exchange of ideas and formulate new collaborations. Funds will likely be available to support early career researcher attendance.
This conference is for scientists from academia and industry who study the biology of photoreceptor or RPE cells.
Major themes of the meeting are: 1) Examine specializations of photoreceptor and RPE cell biology and metabolism that provide adaptations to meet the demands of photoreception; 2) Explore photoreceptor development and reprogramming approaches to regenerate photoreceptor cells; 3) Live imaging of photoreceptor and RPE cells in models to investigate physiology and cell biology, and in the retinas of patients to understand processes of disease.
Conference sessions will present the latest research findings and foster engaging discussion on:
Retinal stem cells, development and reprogramming
Synaptic processing and development
High vision acuity and phototransduction
Photoreceptor-RPE cell interactions
Photoreceptor and RPE imaging
Photoreceptor and RPE intracellular trafficking
