    Kurzbeschreibung
    Today, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) remains a leading cause of blindness in developed countries—affecting more than 15 million people in the United States alone. The Biennial Symposium on AMD brings together vision scientists and researchers from related fields to discuss the latest topics in AMD research. The goal of this symposium is to propel innovative AMD research that will ultimately eradicate this blinding disease.
