In 1984, we geared up a two-day symposium on retinal degenerations as a part of the biennial assembly of the VI overseas Society for Eye examine, held in Alicante, Spain. The luck of this primary assembly resulted in the second one held, years later in Sendai, Japan, equipped as a satellite tv for pc of the VII ISER. We have been lucky that those conferences begun at a time of lively learn job within the sector of retinal degenerations, because of the monetary aid of the Retinitis Pigmentosa starting place and the robust encouragement of its clinical director, Dr. Alan Laties. major advances have been made in order that each years scientists have been desirous to meet to percentage their findings. The courses incorporated shows via either easy and medical researchers with considerable time for casual discussions in a calm atmos phere. Many investigators met for the 1st time at those symposia and a few fruitful collaborations have been verified. This publication includes the lawsuits of the VI foreign Symposium on Retinal Degenerations held November 6-10, 1994, in Jerusalem. As with the opposite conferences, a few new parts have been coated. One consultation was once dedicated to apoptosis, a tremendous method desirous about telephone demise in inherited retinal degenerations. one other consultation used to be on invertebrate photoreceptors, the place a variety of mutations have now been pointed out that result in altered functionality or degeneration of the retina. All individuals have been invited to publish chapters and so much complied. We thank them for his or her contributions.
