Ocular Diseases Drug Discovery

Dear Colleague,

The 9th Ocular Diseases Drug Discovery Conference is taking place on March 20-21, 2017 in San Diego, CA. We are excited to have top representatives from the industry and academic sectors to discuss technologies and targets that are continually changing the way ocular diseases are treated. Drug delivery is always improving as we look at for better methods to penetrate anterior and poster segments of the eye. Successes in gene therapy and regenerative medicine are proving to be interesting approaches to discuss in detail pre-clinically and clinically. We are gathering leading scientists, researchers, and experts to discuss and collaborate on combating and curing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), dry eye, glaucoma, diabetic macular edema (DME), and other ocular diseases.

Session Topics

  1. Novel Therapeutic Targets for Ocular Diseases
  2. Stem Cell and Gene Therapy for Ocular Diseases
  3. Combination Therapies for Ocular Diseases
  4. Recent Developments in Drug Delivery for Ocular Diseases


  1. Leveraging CROs to externalize R&D
