Abstract

Presentation Description : Molecular technologies have been developing at a rapid pace in diagnostic pathology, and have become affordable in most places, allowing for implementation in health care systems. These new molecular technologies have: a) enabled a better understanding of the pathogenesis of diseases; b) allowed for improved diagnostic procedures in ophthalmic pathology, particular in infection and eye cancers; c) aided prediction to response to therapy; and d) refined prognostication. In this presentation, examples of how molecular pathology is being applied in ophthalmological samples will be provided.

This abstract was presented at the 2019 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Vancouver, Canada, April 28 - May 2, 2019.
