Description: This session will provide an overview of current efforts to apply stem cells toward the treatment of retinal degenerative disease using stem cell derived retinal pigment epithelium. Participants will address a number of key areas. I) strategies for the functional validation of stem cell derived retinal pigment epithelia (rpe), ii) design and planning for an ind to test autologous ips cell derived rpe in patients with geographic atrophy due to age-related macular degeneration, and iii) use of tissue derived stem cells and the level of differentiation required prior to transplantation for effective therapy.
