The University of Birmingham is a global top 100 university, ranking 10th in the Russell Group for research. This includes a wide range of research, from ocular health and disease prevention to the accessibility of railways and mental wellbeing of teenagers with vision impairment.

We are proud to be hosting a conference and a research celebration event linked to IBSA this year.

Drugs, Devices and Data – Focusing on the Future Delivery of Eye Health Care 

This two-day conference on 13 and 14 June will celebrate research by University of Birmingham academics into eye health and sight loss.

The program takes eye care from the lab to cutting edge artificial intelligence (AI). Speakers have been carefully chosen from around the globe to highlight the amazing work being done to forward our understanding of eye disease and delivery of drugs and technology to better the care of our patients and prevent blindness.
