    Honors celebrate research, future generation in retina


    Dendritic Cell Migration

    Dr. Tang, vitreoretinal surgery fellow, Stanford University Byers Eye Institute, Palo Alto, CA, studied whether dendritic cells (early responders to ocular injury) are involved in cone death in LCA2. In a mouse model, Dr. Tang found dendritic cells are recruited to the outer retina, and cone death triggers dendritic cell recruitment.

    “It may be the dendritic cells are cone protective,” he said. The clinical significance could affect how researchers treat white dot syndromes, S-cone syndromes, Stargardt disease, Leber congenital amaurosis, cone dystrophy, retinitis pigmentosa, and Behcet disease, among others.
