Event description

Description

Gained in Translation is the annual joint meeting of vision scientists and clinicians from the Departments of Ophthalmology at UW, OHSU, and UBC. This year’s meeting will be hosted by UBC, and held at the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre at Vancouver General Hospital on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The goals of this meeting are to learn about areas of ongoing translational vision research, to learn about areas of successful collaboration where basic science advances have led to improved clinical care, and to foster collaborative relationships between these institutions in the Pacific Northwest. This year's Keynote will be given by Dr. Emily Chew (NEI-NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA), and thematic sessions will cover uveitis, ocular oncology, AMD, and eye genetics. Trainees at all stages of their academic or clinical career are invited, and welcome to present their research in a poster session.
