Ophthalmologica Lecture 2024 submissions are now closed.

The Young Retina Specialists (YOURS) committee of Euretina would like to invite you to propose a talented European colleague in the field of retinal research for the prestigious Ophthalmologica Lecture in 2024.

The Ophthalmologica Lecture is awarded to a young (max. 40 years of age) European ophthalmologist/clinician-scientist in the field of retinal research who has shown outstanding talent for research, and who is expected to be an exceptional talent in contributing further to the field of retina research during their further career.

The Ophthalmologica Lecture is held at the Annual EURETINA Congress during the YOURS Symposium and the award consists of an award certificate, prize money, and an invited review monograph in the Ophthalmologica journal.

Please, submit your proposal and motivation at the following link before the 16th February, 2024 (23:59 CET).

Upon review by the YOURS committee, recommendations are sent to the Euretina Board who will make the final decision.

Thank you for your participation and for supporting the young retina researchers of our community!
