Presentation Description :
The extracellular matrix is an important yet poorly understood component of the central nervous system and eye. Matrix dysregulation leads to a variety of systemic and CNS diseases including glaucoma, corneal erosion, and retinal dystrophies. In his groundbreaking work, the late Yoshi Sasai demonstrated the profound ability of the ECM to recapitulate ocular development in vitro. Nevertheless, our understanding of many aspects of ocular ECM is in its infancy. This symposium brings together scientists as speakers and participants from several disciplines to review both the state of our knowledge and ignorance of ocular ECM with the goal to set the course forward for this important field. I will provide a short introduction to the mini-symposium high-lighting recent critical advances in the field.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
