From Bench to Bedside and Back

Today, more and more, the research conducted in labs travels the full journey from bench to bedside. Whether you are examining the genetics of disease or the possibilities of a new technology to diagnose, treat, or even prevent an eye condition, this work often begins with a burning question that leads to more questions and answers. Those answers and more questions may journey to a patient’s bedside, for a novel treatment. Still, the treatment may lead to more questions – bringing us back to the bench with more questions. To highlight this important work and its evolving journey, ARVO 2019 will have the theme “From Bench to Bedside and Back.” Mark your calendar and make plans to join ARVO in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2019.

Things to do in Vancouver

Vancouver offers the winning combination of a modern, diverse city on the edge of spectacular nature. The international airport and superior accommodations and convention facilities are moments away from shopping, fine dining and cultural attractions as well as the area’s natural playground of ocean, mountains and rainforest. It is the ideal destination for a meeting, which doubles as a top vacation spot.

ARVO/Alcon Keynote Series

We are pleased to welcome Randy W. Schekman, PhD, Nobel Laureate and professor of cell and developmental biology at the University of California at Berkeley, as the Opening Keynote speaker at ARVO 2019.
