The WVUK and the Women in Vision and Eye Research in Ireland (WVER) are delighted to announce this exciting collaboration as part of the upcoming Pan-Ireland Ophthalmology Day on Friday, 14 October 2022.

This session is open to all who work in ophthalmology. The aim of this session is to promote research and the sharing of ideas and expertise in all aspects of the field of ophthalmology. We aim to support and promote the visibility of women at all stages of their careers, whether that be as a student, a researcher, an ophthalmologist, an optometrist, a pharmacist, a clinician, surgeon or nurse. With this is mind we are hosting an in-person rapid-fire presentation session during the Pan-Ireland Ophthalmology Day conference.

We are awarding five travel bursaries to cover in person attendance of women in biomedical and clinical research related to all areas of eye care.

Use this form to submit a 2000 character abstract for this session and be considered for the travel bursaries. 

We encourage those new to research, those recently returned from periods of leave, those who have changed research area or specialty, students and experienced researchers to submit abstracts for consideration in this session.

This session will continue to honour the life and legacy of Dr Kathleen Lynn, a pioneering doctor, socialist and public-health campaigner and the prestigious Dr Kathleen Lynn Award will be presented to the best overall early-stage researcher on the day. 

Call for abstracts

The call for abstracts is now open. Deadline for submission is 5pm on 30 September 2022.

All abstracts submitted will be considered for a travel bursary to support in person attendance.
