The laboratory made two presentations at the annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this May in Denver, CO. Katie Chirco, graduate student, presented a poster on C-reactive protein in age-related macular degeneration. Dr. Mullins spoke at a minisymposium on the topic "Molecular changes in the choroid in aging and AMD." The lab's work was well received.

The lab published a manuscript in the March 2015 issue of "Progress in Retinal and Eye Research" titled "Complement activation and choriocapillaris loss in early AMD: implications for pathophysiology and therapy."
This manuscript links genetics, immunology and pathology, and proposes a model for early development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The implications of this model on therapy were also discussed.
