Presenting: The 8th World Symposium on Ocular Albinism & Other Vision Disorders
Vision of Children is hosting a very important Symposium of the world’s best vision research scientists. It will be held at the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa November 6-8, 2013. This year, 30 scientists from Europe, Asia, and North America are scheduled to attend and present the cutting-edge data from their research. It is unusual for researchers to share their work while still in progress, but this format, organized by VOC, has proven to be very popular with researchers throughout the world.
Parents are welcome to attend the symposium. In addition to being able to sit in on the researchers’ sessions, there will be a special session for parents. Within this setting, Dr. Richard Lewis will share the latest in research and give everyone an opportunity to ask questions. Dr. Lewis has been a strong advocate of translation of genetic research back to patient care and has shepherded the establishment of the clinical DNA testing for OA1 at the Baylor Diagnostic Laboratory.
