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.

Submit your abstract online by February 3, 2010 at:

Please Note: As a satellite to the annual meeting of ARVO, the
Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, we are requested
by ARVO, as co-sponsor, to stipulate that you do not present the same
work at both the Vision Research conference and the ARVO main meeting.
We would appreciate your assistance in complying with this stipulation.

Selected quality posters will be chosen to present a 10 minute oral
presentation based on their poster and latest results.

Abstracts are invited for poster presentations on the following
symposium topics. Please submit abstracts using the Online Submission
Form by 
3 February 2010 according to the abstract preparation guidelines. 

Topics include

- Signal processing by retinal ganglion cells 
- Photosensitive ganglion cells 
- Ganglion cell development and axonal targeting 
- Optic nerve damage and regeneration 
- Mechanisms of ganglion cell death/animal models 
- Pathogenesis/neuro-protection for ganglion cells 
- Gene defects associated with ganglion cell disease 
- Novel therapeutic approaches in glaucoma 

All abstracts will be refereed and a criterion of rejection will be lack
of originality. A condition of submission is that, if accepted, the
paper will be presented at the Thirteenth Annual Vision Research
Conference by one of the authors.
