The 2005 WERC, "Regenerative Ocular Biology: Restoring Vision in the Aged and Diseased Eye," will feature presentations on current frontiers of regenerative biology and its foundation within vision research. Topics will include stem cell biology; scarless wound healing; and control of cell growth and differentiation by gene transfer. The Plenary Speaker will be Fred H. Gage, PhD, of The Salk Institute. Keynote Speakers will be Jean Bennett, MD, PhD, Mark W. J. Ferguson, BSc, DDS, PhD, FDS, FFD, FMedSci, CBE, Mark Humayun, MD, PhD, Mark Keating, MD, Robert Lavker, PhD, Bjorn R.
