George Kambara, MD, Vision Science Symposium

April 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Presented by the UW Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

 

Monice Vetter, PhDKeynote Speaker: MOnica Vetter, PhD – UNiversity of Utah – Chair of the Department chair of neurobiology and Anatomy

Dr. Vetter’s laboratory is focused on understanding the molecular pathways controlling neural development and degeneration in the retina. The retina is of critical importance since disorders of eye development can lead to congenital blindness, while degeneration of retinal neurons can cause progressive blindness at later ages.

Featured Speakers:

  • Michael G. Anderson, PhD, Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics; Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences within the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa
  • Amy Lee, PhD, Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, Otolaryngology Head-Neck Surgery, and Neurology Assistant Dean for Research within the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa
  • Katie M. Litts, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow within the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute

 

We are looking forward to a full, exciting day of visual science presentations and invite you to submit your abstracts below. Abstract submission will be open from Wednesday, December 5, 2018 through Friday, January 18, 2019. We will advise you of your submission status by February 15, 2019. Thank you in advance for your participation!
