Aniridia Europe Meeting, Italy 2012

17 December 2012

Aniridia Europe Scientific Committee 2012…

Julie has joined the Scientific Advisory Committee for Aniridia Europe. The Committee is comprised of five leading aniridia clinicians and scientists from different EU countries. Their first meeting was held at the Venice Eye Bank in Mestre, Italy in November 2012. The Scientific Committee is planning a joint research strategy in collaboration with patient groups, some of whom also attended the meeting. The event was very productive and gave time for the researchers to understand the concerns and hopes of those with aniridia. The next Aniridia Europe Conference will be held in Venice in 2014.
