)-- SMi Group are delighted to welcome the expertise from a senior panel of big pharma and ophthalmic organisations, as well as regulatory bodies, at the 2nd annual Ophthalmic Drugs 2018 conference, taking place in November in the City of London, UK.
Day 1 - Opening Address: New Strategies for Treating Retinal Vascular Diseases:
Discover advancements in the treatment of ocular diseases as Professor Alan Stitt, Dean of Innovation and Impact, Queen's University Belfast presents an overview of pathogenesis of ischaemic retinopathies, a disease that affects the immature retinal vascular system, as well as the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the disease. Check out the full presentation details online, as Alan looks ahead to new treatment pathways and improved use of preclinical evidence in the clinical setting to aid translation.
Professor Stitt’s research is in the inter-related areas of diabetic retinopathy, retinal angiogenesis and microvascular biology. His work has uncovered some key pathogenic pathways involved in neuroglial and microvascular dysfunction in the diabetic retina and this has led to the development and testing of several compounds that have progressed to clinical trials.
Alan holds a Royal Society Wolfson Merit award and is the Editor of Current Eye Research, an Associate Editor for Diabetologia and currently sits on several other editorial board and panels.
