          About This Event

          Summary

           The fourth annual Vision Research Symposium held by the Department of Ophthalmology at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute will be Friday, Oct. 25. The deadline to submit abstracts for consideration at the symposium is Friday, Oct. 4.

           The keynote speaker will be Colm O’Brien, M.D., of University College Dublin (Ireland). Dr. O’Brien is the lead clinician in the Department of Ophthalmology at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, a teaching hospital in the north inner city of Dublin. He is a member of the Glaucoma Program Committee of the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and has served on multiple boards and committees for ophthalmology and glaucoma associations.

          Dr. O’Brien’s research interests include matrix (differential gene expression) and vascular (endothelial dysfunction) biology in glaucoma; health services research; retinal ganglion cell apoptosis; phenotyping/genotyping of glaucoma patients and proteomics of pseudo-exfoliation glaucoma.

          This year the symposium returns to a one-day research format. Presentations will be held in Spitzberg Hall at the Glick Eye Institute, 1160 W. Michigan St. The day will begin with a Continental breakfast and registration at 7:30 a.m. and is expected to conclude by 5 p.m.

          “As is years past, we will again seek abstracts for oral presentation or poster presentations at the symposium,” said Alon Harris, M.S., Ph.D., director of clinical research at the Glick Eye Institute and symposium director. “We will select speakers based the abstracts submitted. Abstracts not selected for presentation could be included in poster sessions that will be held concurrently with the symposium.”

          Monetary awards will be given for the top three posters with $100 going to the first place poster; $75 to the second place poster and $25 to the third place poster.

          The cost to attend will be:

          ·         $50 for M.D./O.D./D.O./Ph.D. participants

          ·         $35 for postdoctoral participants

          ·         Free for students, residents, fellows and staff

Information on uploading abstracts due Friday, Oct. 4. Registration is available here. For more information, visit www.glick.iu.edu.
