  1. Call for conference proposals

    Call for Conference Proposals Call for Conference Proposals The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) is soliciting proposals from ARVO members wishing to serve as an organizer of an ARVO Conference. These conferences are for the purpose of providing eye and vision science content of broad appeal and/or great significance to the field outside the framework of the ARVO Annual Meeting. Proposal outline Review the Brief Conference Proposal Outline before submitting your pr

  2. Symposia

    Annual Meeting Session Recordings: Symposia Proteostasis networks: challenges and therapeutic opportunities for ocular diseases Proteostasis, or protein homeostasis, is a key achievement of cells that impact critically on virtually every aspect of cell physiology, functions and lifespan. The cellular machinery that underpins Proteostasis integrates complex, multi-layered regulatory networks affecting global protein synthesis, protein trafficking and processing, folding, aggregation and degra

  3. Award Lectures

    Annual Meeting 2018 Recorded Sessions: Award Lectures Cogan Award Presentation and Lecture From Micro Imaging to Macro Functioning in Glaucoma by Felipe A. Medeiros, MD, PhD, professor of clinical ophthalmology and medical director of the Hamilton Glaucoma Center at the University of California, San Diego Shiley Eye Center   Technological advances have dramatically changed the glaucoma landscape. This lecture addresses some of the challenges in determining how these new technologies can res

  4. Workshops

    Annual Meeting 2018 Recorded Sessions: Workshops Experimental design for optimal animal research in the age of the 'reproducibility crisis' Animal models play a vital role in ocular research. Data obtained using animal models provide vital pre-clinical evidence for the decision of whether to continue to clinical trials or not. In vivo experiments also are fundamental for determining the molecular basis of physiology and pathophysiology, especially in complex tissues like the eye. The import

  5. Special Sessions

    Annual Meeting 2018 Session Recordings: Special Sessions Military Relevant Priorities and Strategies for Injury Diagnostics and Treatments The military recognizes that the diagnosis and treatment of combat ocular trauma injuries is a critical medical capability shortfall. Engagement with academic, industry, interagency, and other partners is vital to obtain the necessary diagnostics and treatments for this capability gap. Ocular injuries sustained during combat are often in austere environm

  6. Minisymposia

    Annual Meeting 2018 Session Recordings: Minisymposia   Retinal lipid and glucose metabolism in health and disease The retina is one of the most metabolically demanding tissues in the body.  Fluctuating energy demands in the retinal neurons, glia, and vascular cells often require lipid as well as glucose metabolism for energy.  The highly complex regulation of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism is beginning to be understood, and this mini-symposium will explore these pathways in various retina

    Continuing Medical Education Program Educational objectives After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:  Discuss the results of basic and clinical ophthalmology investigations and vision research underway, relevant to my area of interest or practice. Describe new models and methods being used by researchers and practitioners in eye and vision science.  Cite ways in which new research data and methods may influence my research and/or practice. Discuss prospec
