European Retina Meeting 2017, 5th to the 7th October in Paris, France

This Meeting is aiming at bringing together the best specialists in vision, especially in retinal research, from all over the world to facilitate a wider exchange of ideas and concepts and to evoke stimulating discussions about the complex mechanisms that underlie retinal processing

The registration and abstracts submission for oral and poster presentations are now open, further info can be found on the event page
