With the eye being the window to the brain, eye care has shown one of the most interesting and commercially successful pairings of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and digital health solutions in medicine. In this talk we will explore the developments of commercial products along one stream of this path, Age Related Macular Degeneration. We will look at one investigator's contribution to how initial investigations lead to changes in disease detection, new device development and commercialisation and ultimately to digital solutions for clinical workflow.


18:00 - 18:15: Welcome address - Professor Nora Colton

18:15 - 19:15: Lecture by Professor Adam Dubis, followed by a Q&A session.
