Virtual Discussion Series


About the Discussion Series

The RReSTORe Consortium sponsors periodic virtual discussions aimed at maintaining collaborative dialogues surrounding our collective work on vision restoration for optic neuropathies. The discussions feature groundbreaking work from various disciplines related to neuronal transplantation throughout the central nervous system, stem cell biology, bioengineering of implantable materials, computational electrophysiology of the visual system, and advanced model systems for studying optic nerve disease, among other topics. Discussions take place approximately 3 to 4 times per year.
