12th Annual meeting of UK-EGG

September 14th to 16th, 2017

This year’s annual conference was held jointly with the International Society for Genetic Eye Diseases and Retinoblastoma (ISGEDR). We had 180 delegates from 20 countries for a three day meeting at the Rose Bowl in Leeds. There was a full programme with invited speakers, submitted abstracts and concurrent sessions on a wide range of topics around science discovery, clinical management, updates on treatment trials, clinical case discussion and patient experiences. For the full programme, click here.

Co-hosting a joint meeting was a great success, attracting international researchers and clinicians across the field of ophthalmic genetics, giving an opportunity to showcase work from the UK and importantly provided a great environment to develop new international collaborations and working relationships. The quality of the presentations, both spoken and posters, were excellent, it was a highly informative and dynamic meeting.

We extend our thanks to our inaugural UK-EGG keynote lecturer Professor Andrew Read, to the joint organizing committee, especially Amanda Churchill from UK EGG and the joint scientific committee. We are also very grateful to the host team in Leeds for organizing such a professional meeting in an excellent venue and a great conference dinner (Carmel Toomes, Chris Inglehearn, Martin McKibbin.
