    This podcast series from the Academy’s Committee on Aging features leading experts who discuss their Jahnigen research and the differences in caring for older adults.

    In today’s podcast, Dr. Joshua Dunaief discusses the role of iron toxicity in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Rare eye diseases such as aceruloplasminemia and iron in the retina could be contributing to early onset of macular degeneration in people as young as 40.
