The Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research (RIMR) brings together outstanding basic scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians to develop a better understanding of age-related atrophic macular degeneration (AMD). At annual RIMR conferences, these accomplished leaders from very different backgrounds and disciplines explore technologies, discoveries, and ideas. By sharing their diverse perspectives in interdisciplinary discussions and research collaborations, RIMR participants are improving AMD diagnostics, and expanding the prospect of new treatments for the number one cause of visual impairment and blindness in older Americans.
The 12th annual conference is postponed to March 15-17, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
We thank our 2019 corporate partners who are committed to improving the diagnosis and treatment of AMD.
