|(Optional) CAPVI Meeting or Networking Time for Teachers|
Dr. Julius Oatts, Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Pediatric Glaucoma Specialist and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, University of California, San Francisco.
Dr. Oatts completed medical school at Yale School of Medicine, an ophthalmology residency at University of California, San Francisco, a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School/Boston Children's Hospital, and a fellowship in pediatric glaucoma at Moorfields Eye Hospital. He is involved in resident education as the Associate Residency Program Director for Ophthalmology and does research focused on the diagnosis and management of glaucoma in children.
Dr. Arvind Chandna, Senior Clinician-Scientist, Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute (SKERI), San Francisco, CA and Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool, UK.
Dr. Chandna conducts research programs dealing with significant gaps in clinical and scientific knowledge of common childhood eye conditions with poor management outcomes and investigates them in collaboration with SKERI's vision scientists. Along with his research colleagues at SKERI and clinical colleagues at Alder Hey they have put together some of the clinical challenges in CVI as research questions to be investigated with a view to improving diagnosis and intervention and ultimately resulting in improved patient outcomes. Together, their translational clinical research work in CVI extends across disciplines and international boundaries and their CVI@SKI group comprises a diverse group of experts including parents of children with CVI.
Please note that Spanish interpretation of this year's event can be made available if requested on or before January 11, 2021.
