Cambridge Ophthalmology Symposium has decided not to go ahead with the 2021 Symposium.
The Symposium's traditions and values are to provide a forum for spontaneous discussion and debate about topics of mutual interest. As this will be difficult to do in September 2021 with limited auditorium attendees allowed, and is impossible to genuinely achieve as a virtual event, we are instead hosting the first Peter Watson Memorial Lecture, in honour of the Symposium's Founder Mr Peter Watson.
We are privileged that Prof Hugh Taylor, Melbourne Laureate Professor, Harold Mitchell Chair of Indigenous Eye Health Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne will be its inaugural Lecturer.
The Lecture will be opened by Mr Martin Snead, Cambridge, UK and afterwards Prof Patrick Yu Wai Man, Cambridge, UK will give a short prelude presentation to the 2022 Symposium. The topic for 2022 will be The Eye and the Brain.
The Lecture is offered as a free event to registered attendees. To accommodate attendees joining around the globe in different time zones the first broadcast of the Lecture will take place on the 3rd September, a second showing on the 4th. We look forward to your attendance at our first virtual event one of these days and hope to welcome you in person to the Symposium in 2022.
Book you place, registration is open now.
