    Fourth Annual ‘Northwest Lions Gained in Translation’ Summit Meeting
    September 13, 2014
    South Lake Union Research Laboratories 

    The University of Washington, Department of Ophthalmology, in collaboration with the Department of Ophthalmology at University of British Columbia, will host the fourth annual ‘Northwest Lions Gained in Translation’ summit meeting on September 13, 2014, at the new South Lake Union research laboratories.

    Gained in Translation has become the Northwest’s premiere clinical and basic vision science meeting.  The meeting has a unique format, where each hour is spent on a clinical question.  The talks are split between a clinician and a basic scientist, with the former outlining the unmet clinical need and the latter discussing ways in which recent research might address that need.  Last year for the first time, we partnered with UBC for this event, and had each hour a partnership between UBC and UW faculty.  Last year the meeting in Vancouver drew over 100 ophthalmologists and vision scientists from around the region.

    This year, our keynote speaker will be Dr. Terri Young from Duke University, who will discuss mechanisms and genetics of myopia.  There will be six additional hours of didactic content across a range of subjects in ophthalmology including retina, pediatric ophthalmology, and ocular infectious disease.  The evening will end with a banquet at the new facilities.
