ARVO/Alcon Keynote Closing Session: What’s next in the investigation of genetics of age-related macular degeneration?

The session featured a panel of experts focusing on the next set of potential investigations to further our understanding of the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) based upon current knowledge of the genetics of AMD. Presenters explored lessons from other diseases that have taken that translational step in moving from gene discovery to better understanding of functional aspects; approaches to functionalizing rare variants; and the use of biobanks to iterate from discovery to disease mechanism. The panel discussed how these approaches may help us move forward from our current knowledge of the genetics of AMD to actionable steps to reduce the burden of blindness from AMD.
