We invite you to join us at the Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposium.
The Symposium is unique among ophthalmological gatherings. A two day residential meeting that attracts both scientists and clinicians who enjoy participating in extensive, in-depth and lively discussion about a subject of joint interest, all under the chairmanship of one of the leaders in that field.
Apart from the excellent scientific programme, you will have the opportunity to discover and enjoy one of the best known Colleges, in one of the world's most famous university cities. Dinner in the College Hall along the long tables shouldn't be missed, nor a trip down to the river to watch the punts go by.
Situated on the delightful Cambridge "Backs", St John's College provides an enchanting setting for the symposium. The fine sixteenth and seventeenth century courts are linked to the later nineteenth-century Gothic "New Court" by the picturesque Bridge of Sighs and within the College can also be found the oldest surviving secular building in Cambridge, The School of Pythagoras, dating from about 1200.
It was the St John's College Boat Club which first challenged Oxford to a race, so originating the annual University Boat Race on the Thames.
We much look forward to seeing you in Cambridge in 2016. We can assure you of a warm welcome and we hope you will take away not only some new ideas about this challenging field of medicine, but also a lasting memory of Cambridge.
