Description

New Frontiers in Ocular Therapeutics: Moving Towards the Clinic

Our second international workshop assembles interdisciplinary experts, early career researchers and PhD students translating research in ocular therapeutics (discovery, development, delivery) towards therapeutic development for patients with blinding disorders. We will also hear from the patient perspective, learning what is important for patients in therapy development.

This workshop is being held in University College Dublin's Conway Institute on June 7th and 8th 2018.

The three sessions focus on Ocular drug discovery, development & delivery and translational medicine: moving therapies towards the clinic.

Each session has a dedicated discussion at the end.

There is also a workshop networking dinner organised for the Thursday evening 7th June.

There is a bursary available to assist 3 early career researchers to attend and present at the workshop.

Poster astracts can be emailed to workshop organiser Alison Reynolds with the title "NFOT Abstract". Abstracts need to be received by Wednesday 30th May. Details of the poster abstract information is provided in the FAQ section.

We are keen to establish new networks of individuals who can become your future collaborators.
