22sepallday23alldayTargeting Ocular Disorders


Event Details

Ophthalmological pharmacology has historically lacked systematic understanding of disease mechanisms, especially of those for the back of the eye. This is now changing with the discovery of novel targets and pathways paired with a greater understanding of the role of genetics in ocular pathologies.

The third annual Targeting Ocular Disorders will cover some of the most promising emerging therapies in the treatment of ocular diseases. Special focus with be given to age-related macular degeneration and retinopathy. Designated sessions will emphasize the role of precise imaging techniques and animal models in accelerating preclinical development. Recent solutions in drug delivery to the back of the eye will also be discussed.
