I would like to draw your attention to the third annual EUPON meeting, which will be held on Apr 14–15th 2018 in Düsseldorf, Germany. EUPON is a unique interdisciplinary scientific meeting focusing on diseases of the optic nerve and retina from both an ophthalmologic and a neurologic perspective. This year’s meeting covers nine main topics which will be covered from the preclinical, diagnostic and therapeutic point of view: Optic neuritis and multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis spectrum disorders, preclinical retinal imaging of mice and rats, hereditary optic neuropathies, glaucoma, retinal diseases affecting the optic nerve, standardization of retinal imaging (quality control criteria and reporting guidelines), anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, and pseudotumor cerebri syndrome. We have tried to put a special focus on including not only cutting edge lectures on the clinical state of the art but also integrating the relevant translational aspects of basic science research in the field.
The program is available on www.eupon-2018.com. The registration fee is 200€ for healthcare professionals and researchers, students (e.g. PHD or MD candidates, student ID required) are welcome to participate free of charge. The registration fee includes conference documents and catering and a link to the registration website can be found on www.eupon-2018.com.
