British Association for Ophthalmic Pathology 2017 meeting
The following information has been kindly submitted by Dr Caroline Thaung:
The 36th annual meeting of the British Association for Ophthalmic Pathology will take place on 30-31 March 2017, hosted by Professor Susan Kennedy. The meeting will be held at the Royal Victoria Eye & Ear Hospital, Adelaide Road, Dublin 2.
Please note that the annual meeting of the Bowman Club (cornea special interest society) will also be taking place in Dublin on Friday 31 March. It is hoped that co-locating these two meetings with sessions of interest to members of both groups will be a valuable opportunity for all members.
The BAOP meeting starts at 0930h on Thursday 30 March. It is anticipated to end at lunchtime on Friday 31 March, with the intention of allowing interested BAOP members to attend the Bowman Club afternoon session.
