The centerpiece of Glaucoma 360, the New Horizons Forum unites key clinical, industry, financial, and FDA leaders in a unique exchange on research innovation and advances in glaucoma treatment.
Launched in 2012 by the Glaucoma Research Foundation, this catalyst meeting is designed to bring the essential components together in order to speed the translation of new ideas into clinical practice.
What others are saying about the New Horizons Forum:
“The best meeting to see what is happening in glaucoma from surgery to new drugs and drug delivery systems.”
- Alan S. Crandall, MD, University of Utah
“The meeting provided an opportunity for a good deal of ‘cross fertilization.’ As an immediate and direct result we are now meeting with a major company for potential delivery of one compound and a start-up company for delivery of a novel compound. I can only imagine how much effort it takes to create such a unique meeting and then to execute it flawlessly.”
- Robert Thompson, CEO, Amorphex Therapeutics
“This is the glaucoma meeting to attend.”
- George A. Cioffi, MD, Chairman, Department of Ophthalmology, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
Who should attend:
- Early-stage company CEOs and executives
- Business Development and other representatives from companies that offer pharmaceuticals, devices, drug delivery, and IOP monitoring for glaucoma patients
- Key Opinion Leaders and Leading Ophthalmologists
- Industry Executives
- Venture Capitalists
- Representatives from Clinical Research Organizations
- Scientific innovators
