Our target audience is affected individuals and their families, researchers, physicians, and potential industry partners. The goal of the workshop is to provide a deep understanding of the current landscape surrounding PRPH2-associated diseases and dominantly inherited macular dystrophies, review the science and potential treatment approaches, as well as to identify key knowledge gaps to inform future funding in the field. Please mark your calendars for March 29-31, 2023. The workshop will be a combination of didactic sessions, patient perspectives, and discussion sessions. Session topics will include: ‘PRPH2: Foundational Biology and Mechanism,’ ‘Therapeutic Strategies for Autosomal Dominant Macular Dystrophies,’ and ‘Patient Resources,’ and many others.
