The 2022 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) and Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Cornea and Ocular Surface Biology, Pathology and Regeneration will explore mechanisms underlying corneal and ocular surface health, disease and treatments. The aim of the meeting is to share new knowledge from basic, translational and clinical research so that we are better equipped as a vision community to translate findings from bench to bedside in a timely manner and so maintain, restore and improve corneal and ocular surface health now and in the future. The novelty of this conference will be the focus on advances in methodology and translation of discoveries into clinical practice. The presentations will feature established and early career scientists in a range of areas from the field of cornea and ocular surface research.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Cornea and Ocular Surface Biology, Pathology and Regeneration (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
