9th Annual USH Connections Conference

July 15, 2017 | Chicago, Illinois

The presenters at the 9th USH Connections Conference gave us a lot of exciting information about research that is taking place right now to eventually treat and cure vision loss and balance issues associated with Usher syndrome. Some of this information may seem like science fiction, but it's not. 

Read the conference transcript to learn:

  1. how researchers can use your cells to grow new, healthy retinal cells;
  2. how viruses (yes, viruses!) are being used to deliver healthy genes to replace unhealthy genes; 
  3. how 3-D printed structures are being used to grow new, healthy, retinal cells;
  4. how balance problems in mice with Usher syndrome were cured using special "anti-sense" drug injections.
