As part of AEVR’s Sixth Annual Emerging Vision Scientists Day on Capitol Hill, recognizing International AMD Awareness Week 2020 and Health Aging Month, join us for this Congressional Briefing featuring National Eye Institute (NEI) clinician-scientist Tiarnan D. Keenan, BM, BCh, PhD and T.Y. Alvin Liu, MD, Wilmer Eye Institute/Johns Hopkins University, who will discuss how Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases. Jack Stewart, a representative from the American Macular Degeneration Foundation (AMDF), will also provide an AMD patient’s perspective.

Join us for a conversation with 22 early-stage vision scientists about the impact of COVID-19 laboratory closures on their research and overall career pathway. In addition, hear from each of the Emerging Vision Scientists (EVS) in personal videos about their breakthrough eye and vision research that addresses the question, “How will this research delay, reduce, and prevent the $717 billion annual cost of eye disease and vision impairment projected by year 2050?”

* Learn more about each EVS and their research
