Presentation Description :
While the everyday role of microglia in the uninjured retina is not fully understood, there is evidence that microglia in pathological contexts may contribute to parainflammation and potentiate photoreceptor degeneration via non-cell autonomous mechanisms. The presentation will review the evidence that microglia may contribute to photoreceptor degeneration and the mechanisms that underlie this contribution.
