Dear Participants,

On behalf of Celeste and Bruno Piperno, the symposium organizing committee would like to welcome you to Tenuta di Monaciano. The beautiful villa, houses, and grounds of this estate are the site for our meeting of experts focused on the development of treatments for retinal dystrophies and degenerations. The past ten years have seen tremendous progress toward our shared goals. Gene-replacement therapy, and to some extent stem-cell therapy, have been transformed from a dream into an evolving reality. As a result, the field has reached a critical juncture, with many challenges and opportunities ahead. The Monaciano Symposium is aimed at defining these challenges, and at identifying the strategies and solutions needed to move the field forward in the next ten years.

The agenda for our meeting was developed to reflect the priorities indicated by your responses to the survey conducted earlier this year. By now meeting together, we hope to further delineate these priorities and to build the consensus needed to solve the critical problems that confront us. A planned outcome of our meeting is a “white paper” that will report our recommendations to the international vision community. In addition, we hope that new opportunities for collaboration will be identified, and that existing collaborations will be deepened as a result of our deliberations.

It is thus with sincere pleasure that we welcome this distinguished group to what promises to be a rich and productive meeting where we will create a blueprint for our work in the years ahead.

Sincerely,

The Symposium Organizing Committee
