The Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research (RIMR)

The RIMR Initiative 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.

Formerly the Beckman Initiative for Macular Research, the program was renamed in 2016 to honor founder, Steve Ryan. More….

Thank you to our corporate partners who are committed to improving the diagnosis and treatment of AMD.
