Chandler-Grant @ NEOS - 2017

The Chandler-Grant Glaucoma Society once again will be presenting at the June meeting of the New England Ophthalmological Society.  The conference is on Friday, June 2 with an additional CGGS session of lectures and a wetlab the following day, June 3, at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.

We are pleased to announce that Janey Wiggs, MD PhD, will be the "Guest of Honor" speaker giving the Chandler-Grant lecture at the NEOS meeting.  Dr. Wiggs is a clinician scientist specializing in the genetics of glaucoma with particular interest in complex and advanced glaucoma, and inherited ocular disorders. She directs the CLIA-certified clinical diagnostic laboratory where patients are tested for mutations in genes that can cause inherited retinal disorders, early-onset glaucoma or primary optic neuropathy. She also is the Associate Director of the Howe Laboratory and Associate Chief for Clinical Research at Mass. Eye and Ear. Among her leadership roles in the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology, she serves as Vice Chair for Clinical Research, Co-Director of the Glaucoma Center of Excellence, and leader of the Genetic Diagnostics Section of the Ocular Genomics Institute.
