We are very excited to announce further details about our award-winning Retina conference.
As previously mentioned, after two years of successfully hosting the conference virtually, we will be back to an in-person event once again. This year our conference will be running on November 3, 4 and 5 at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Dublin City.
We will be bringing together top international and Irish researchers and clinicians in the global effort to find treatments and cures for conditions causing vision impairment and blindness.
On Thursday, November 3 our colleagues from the StarT project (https://www.startn.eu/) will present 14 ESR fellows from the StarT network who will present their PhD studies. There will also be additional keynote speakers to be confirmed soon covering the areas of IRD Genomics, Mechanisms of Disease, and Therapeutics.
Friday, November 4 is our fantastic Scientific Day and Saturday, November 5 will be our popular Public Engagement Day.
