Christine Curcio @AMD_histo_lab and I sat down together for a delightful conversation to scheme out some ideas at the 2024 ARVO conference last week.  Christine is one of the all time greats in the vision research community working in retinal histology, particularly in the fields of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and histopathology, and has done more to define the precise features and terminology of retinal anatomy across imaging modalities with histology than just about anyone else in the field.

Even though her work has been a cornerstone in the field, it was a few years until I first met Christine and her husband back in 2011 in Baden Baden at the International Symposium on AMD, and just recently had the pleasure of being her last visitor before she closed her lab at UAB and moved to New Jersey.

Christine, I am very much looking forward to continued discussions and collaborations, and am hoping that our schemes bear fruit.
