Our Retina International World Congress (RIWC24) takes place from the 5th – 8th June 2024 in the Dublin Royal Convention Centre, in the heart of Dublin city centre.

Our Scientific Committee has been working relentlessly to secure an impressive lineup of outstanding speakers to shed light on this research area so as part of our Meet the Speaker series, we are delighted to announce one more distinguished speaker.

Silvia Cerolini is the mum of 8 year old Vicky affected by RDH12 Inherited Retinal Dystrophy. Moved by a simple promise to “do everything to save Vicky’s sight”, Silvia and her husband Enrico started Through Vicky’s Eyes (now Eyes on the Future) to bring a therapy to those affected by Vicky’s condition as soon as possible.

Her professional career includes 16 years in the consumer good industry in different leadership roles across data, analytics and innovation. Most recently she joined the life science industry, following her purpose for rare diseases. She is now working to accelerate diagnosis and access to life changing therapies for patients with rare diseases by leveraging data and AI.

Stay tuned for more updates as we draw closer to this incredible gathering of the latest scientific research and innovation, set to take place in June 2024!
