Dear friends and distinguished colleagues,
on behalf of PRO RETINA Germany, the organizing team is delighted
to welcome you to the 15th International Research Colloquium
on Retinal Degeneration to be held in Potsdam, Templiner
See, from April 3rd to 4th, 2020. The meeting will focus on current
and future therapies in inherited and multifactorial retinal degenerations,
an area that has received unprecedented attention in
recent years. In the tradition of our colloquium we strongly foster
discussions and scientific interactions between senior and junior
scientists, but also between disciplines and specifically between
attendees and patients.
Two keynote lectures will provide insight into their past and
current scientific work which has led to novel and most promising
therapeutic strategies. Prof. Krzysztof Palczewski from the
University of California, Irvine, will introduce the idea of systems
pharmacology for acquired and inherited retinal diseases, and
Prof. Peter Campochiaro from the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns
Hopkins University, Baltimore, will present his concepts connecting
oxidative damage, cone dysfunction and degeneration in retinitis
This year’s three plenary sessions will cover topics with (i)
updates on innovative approaches in precision medicine, (ii) presentations
on innovative model systems and technologies, and
(iii) discussions on immunity and its imminent consequences on a
healthy the retina. In each session, four distinguished experts will
share their perspectives, state-of-art research results, and their
views on future directions.
In the tradition of the same procedure as every year, the
first day will conclude with our highly esteemed “Swingin’ poster
session”, a unique opportunity for all participants to have a good
time and have stimulating scientific exchanges in a relaxed atmosphere.
PRO RETINA Germany and the organizing team wishes you
an enjoyable PRO RETINA Potsdam Symposium 2020.
