Event description
A workshop to discuss the GALAHAD project outcomes (https://galahad-project.eu/) and related research.

About this Event

Over the past 3 years, a group of clinical, industrial and academic partners have been working to develop a high resolution, polarization sensitive (PS) OCT device under the GALAHAD Horizon 2020 project. The aim is to improve early diagnosis of glaucoma. The consortium are hosting a workshop to discuss the project outcomes and related research. The agenda features a wide range of speakers from the consortium and a demonstration of the PS-OCT system. We hope this will provide a good opportunity to discuss a wide range of OCT research topics in a diverse forum.
