National Advisory Eye Council (NAEC) AG Working Group
The AG Working group is charged with identifying specific targets under the audacious goal of regenerating neurons and neural connections, and will provide ongoing extramural scientific input to the NAEC and the NEI for the initiative. The membership will turnover on a regular basis and will consist of several members of the NAEC along with other vision researchers. The AG Working Group will meet on January 22, 2014.
