Thirteenth Annual Vision Research Conference

Retinal ganglion cells: development, function, and disease 

 

Date: 30 April - 1 May 2010 

Location: Convention Center, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

 

This conference aims to bring together leading basic and clinical
scientists to share the latest research on retinal ganglion cells and
their roles in vision and disease. The goal is to take a comprehensive
look at this critical and complex class of neurons, examining their
development and establishment of axonal and dendritic connections, their
diverse functions in processing signals from the outer retina and
detecting light directly, how they are affected in glaucoma, optic nerve
damage, and other disease conditions, and how our understanding of these
processes can lead to novel therapeutic approaches.

 

Call for poster presentations deadline: 3 February 2010
