The intramural science program of the National Eye Institute, in collaboration with the NIH Center for Regenerative Medicine, is organizing its second symposium on Stem Cells, to be held on the NIH Campus in Bethesda on Monday April 16, 2012. The symposium will focus on advances in stem cells research as they relate to ocular physiology and disease analysis.

Symposium speakers include Kevin Eggan (Harvard Stem Cell Institute), David Gamm (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Thomas Reh (University of Washington), and Sally Temple (Neural Stem Cell Institute, NY).

The symposium will be preceded by the 6th Sayer Vision Science Lecture, to be delivered by Yoshiki Sasai from the Center of Developmental Biology at RIKEN, Japan, on "Self-organization of neural structures in three-dimensional stem cell cultures".

NEI is committed to support the attendance of students and postdoctoral fellows working in the field by offering travel awards.
