Rockville, Md. The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) has extended the deadline for abstract submissions to June 16, 2005 for its Ocular Cell and Molecular Biology (OCMB) Conference to be held September 8-10, 2005 at the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort in Sarasota, Fla.

The OCMB Conference is designed to be highly interactive, focusing on studies of the retina, lens, cornea, and other ocular tissues. The three-day format will include in-depth presentations by invited speakers and researchers selected from submitted abstracts, and poster session presentations. Attendance is limited to 150 scientists, postdoctoral fellows, and students. Keynote speakers will be David Beebe, PhD, Elizabeth Fini, PhD, William Hauswirth, PhD, Leonard A.

First held in Dallas, Texas in 1992, the OCMB Conference is designed to provide close interaction between scientists in different areas of cell and molecular eye research. Past meetings have also been held in San Diego, Calif. (1995), Tammaron, Colo. (1997), and Keystone, Colo. (1999).
