FASEB Science Research Conference: The Biology & Chemistry of Vision
This SRC is the only meeting of its kind specifically dedicated to the field of photoreceptor biology. The scientific program reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of this field, encompassing classical biochemistry and structural biology as well as modern imaging techniques and molecular therapeutic approaches. Specific session topics will range from photoreceptor physiology and RPE cell biology to the immune respose to photoreceptor degeneration. The scientific program will include two keynote addresses and invited talks, as well as numerous short talks and DataBlitz presentations that will be selected from submitted abstracts.
The meeting schedule and venue are designed to present the most exciting scientific advances in an atmosphere that encourages informal interactions and collaborations. All attendees will have the opportunity to present a poster, and optional recreational activities will be available to all participants to foster the exchange of ideas and formulate new collaborations.
