3rd Choroideremia Patient Seminar

In 2018, the PRO RETINA workgroup will once again organize a seminar for Choroideremia patients and people interested in the disease. The objective of this workgroup is to provide an update on the research and new options regarding the diagnosis and treatment. Initial studies of a gene therapy have already been done worldwide. Gene therapy has already been applied in Germany. We will also report on vision aids and counselling options. This is an excellent opportunity to exchange experiences in dealing with the disease. Our speakers and moderators will be happily standing by to answer your questions and remarks. Questions for the speakers can also be presented to the seminar leadership in advance and in writing. The leadership will make sure that your questions reach and will be answered by the appropriate speaker.

Our speakers include:

Dr. Markus Preising, Justus Liebig University Gießen

Prof. Dr. Dominik Fischer University Eye Hospital Tübingen

Dr. Oliver Borsch Centre for regenerative therapy Dresden

Thomas Reichel Reichel Beratung

Dr. Michael Richter RBM Marburg
