About this event

  • Date and time Thu 9 Feb 2023 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Ophthalmology

This is a biannual invited named lecture of the Ophthalmology Section and is one of the highlights of the academic season.

Professor Dick will address the pathology, mechanisms of uveitis and the history of treatment toward biologic therapy and discuss the evidence base of current treatment algorithms.  He will cover current work that looks to define the disease as a molecular and cellular based taxonomy and then personalizing treatments in a stratified way.

The purpose of this meeting is for attendees to hear an eminent ophthalmologist present on ocular inflammatory disease based on his life’s work, enable an understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the disease and gain an in-depth understanding of the possibilities of delivering treatment personalised to individual patient types.

Benefits of attending: 

  • Hear an update on ocular inflammatory disease mechanisms and treatment.  

  • Gain a specific understanding of the molecular and cellular based treatment options.    

  • Understand the possibilities for personalized treatment of ocular inflammatory disease.

Speaker's biography

Professor Andrew Dick is a Clinician Scientist and Immunobiologist. He is Director of the University College London Institute of Ophthalmology where he is Duke Elder Professor of Ophthalmology.  He is also Chair and Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Bristol, UK, where he previously was Director of Research for Medicine and Dentistry. He qualified in medicine and with a degree in Biochemistry (BSc (Hons)) from the University of London, and during his medical education he spent time as an MRC sponsored research associate in Biochemistry with Professor Coleman in Yale. Later, he was a MRC Post-Doctoral Fellow with Jon Sedgwick at the Centenary Institute of Cancer Medicine and Cell Biology in Sydney Australia. His research spans the basic and translational science conduit to early phase trials in inflammation as related to autoinflammatory, autoimmune and degenerative retinal disease, as well as randomized control trials for immunomodulatory therapy in uveitis. Professor Dick was made a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences (UK) in 2007 for his significant contribution to research and scholarship in medicine and was awarded the Alcon Research Institute Research annual award in 2011.
