Unlocking Insights Into AMD Pathogenesis with Advancements in In Vitro Modelling Including Cell Cultures & Retinal Organoids

Time: 11:00 am
day: Conference Day 1


  • Reviewing the differential susceptibility of macular RPE cells and the role of RPE dysregulation in AMD pathogenesis
  • Recapitulating the morphological and functional abnormalities of dry AMD in in vitro models including spontaneously formed cell lines, immortalized cells, primary human and animal RPE cells, and embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived RPE
  • Generating retinal organoids mimicking in vivo retinal development and its molecular and cellular profiles
