"Leading Eye and Vision Research"
The theme of the ARVO 2014 Annual Meeting – Orlando, Fla., May 4 – 8, 2014 – was inspired by all the many ways our members demonstrate leadership. This meeting is where eye and vision researchers come to discover research on the leading edge of their own fields and others. Eye and vision research is leading efforts in many related areas, including neuroscience, tissue imaging, preventative health and others. And of course, ARVO’s members are leaders in their fields. Attendees discovered where eye and vision science is going tomorrow — and in years to come.
Vision research changes the lives of people all over the world ― preventing blindness and restoring sight in both developed and developing countries. Vision researchers' innovations are key to developing new processes and technologies and creating jobs.
The ARVO 2013 Annual Meeting explored how vision scientists change lives. Taking place in Seattle, Wash., May 5 – 9, 2013, we looked at how researchers make a difference: to careers, their colleagues, their communities, the economies of their countries and ultimately, to the people around the world who benefit from their sight-saving work.
"Translational Research: Seeing the possibilities"
Translational research bridges scientific discoveries and the treatment of vision disorders. The 2012 ARVO Annual Meeting, May 6 – 10 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., promoted collaboration between basic and clinical scientists while exploring how basic research translates to effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Advances in genome sciences and related technologies are revolutionizing biology and medicine. We are now able to identify genetic variations associated with vision diseases. Bioinformatics tools are helping us decipher the complexities of gene regulation, and we are learning more about how human cells and the microbiome interact.
Eye and vision researchers gathered at the 2011 Annual Meeting to explore how genome technology is leading to new understandings of vision health, disease and treatment.
