The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this activity for up to 1.00 hours of participation for continuing education for allied health professionals.
- Physician (fellow/resident)
- Community eye care professionals
- Ophthalmic photographers
- Understand the genetic association between complement signaling and age-related macular degeneration AMD.
- Review the clinical studies that support a dysregulated complement-monocyte macrophage signaling axis which may contribute to neovascular AMD.
- Understand how macrophage origin and heterogeneity influence angiogenesis in a mouse model of neovascular AMD.

Grand rounds will discuss both clinical and basic science investigations into the role of monocytes and macrophages in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). First, we will review clinical studies which demonstrate an association between complement, complement dysregulation on blood monocytes, and the importance of macrophages in neovascular AMD. Second, we will discuss basic science investigations which demonstrate the importance of macrophage origin and heterogeneity in experimental laser-induced choroidal neovascularization in mice.
