NEI AMD Integrative Biology Initiative: A Community Resource of Patient iPSC Lines


March 30, 2021



This webinar, jointly hosted with the National Eye Institute (NEI), highlights NEI’s newly launched AMD Integrative Biology Initiative and the resources it is providing for scientists. Hear from Steven Becker, PhD, Kapil Bharti, PhD, Lauren Bauer, and Kerry Goetz, MS on:

  • The value of patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for AMD research and therapeutic discovery
  • Information about the collection of AMD iPSC lines created by NYSCF now available to the research community, how they were generated, and the rigorous quality control used
  • How to obtain corresponding clinical data through the NEI Data Commons – overview of portal, what data is available, and how to request access
