The annual Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology is being held in Vancouver, Canada from April 28-May 2 2019.
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.”
