Neovascularization in the Eye

Angiogenesis is a topic of considerable interest not just for cancer but for many other fields, including the eye. Ocular angiogenesis is important in the development of the retina as well as in pathologies that affect the very young (retinopathy of prematurity) to the very old (macular degeneration). In this workshop, three leading scientists and clinical investigators will discuss the current frontier in understanding, detecting, and treating ocular angiogenesis.
