Event Overview
Welcome message:
Dear Colleague, 

The 7th Ocular Diseases Drug Discovery Conference is taking place on March 19-20, 2015 inSan Diego, CA. Novel therapeutics from the nanotechnology scope are on the rise. The progress in drug and gene-loaded particles that adequately pass through the mucus barriers provides better delivery to ocular tissue. Recent developments in gene therapies with sustained release of a protein have shown promising results with lesser side effects in patients. 

We are gathering leading scientists, researchers, and experts to discuss and collaborate on combating and curing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, diabetic macular edema (DME), and other ocular diseases. Other hot topics to be discussed include PRINT® platform for intraocular prostaglandin formulation, coating technology, anti-angiogenic mechanisms and much more!

  1. Novel Targets and Innovative Technologies Impacting Ocular Diseases
  2. Novel Drug Delivery Methods to the Anterior and Posterior Segments
  3. Models of Ocular Diseases and Clinical Relevance
  4. Clinical Development Advances & Updates 
Panel Discussions:
  1. Business Developments, Investments, and Potential for Collaborations
  2. Challenges of Sustained Release Drug Delivery in Ocular Therapeutics
  3. Regulatory Affairs in Ocular Development
We hope to see you in San Diego!

General Info
GTCbio conferences focus on specific topics and bring together high-level industry participants, academics and government representatives. These conferences are highly targeted and offer more intimate and networking-oriented environment than large industry tradeshows. It is much easier to establish business relationships in a focused conference setting. 

Focus on Networking

One of the key advantages of GTCbio is personal touch. Before each conference we provide our sponsors and exhibitors with lists of conference delegates and assist with scheduling meetings, breakfasts, lunches and dinners. 

Maximizing Exhibitor ROI

GTCbio works closely with many successful biotechnology and biopharmaceutical companies that track and measure ROI of the conferences they participate in. The conferences are optimized for increasing key rating factors including number of leads generated by sponsors, exhibition hours, networking hours, on-site support, speaker quality and others. Business development team works closely with multi-conference exhibitors to identify business partners and invite prospective leads. GTCbio offers more value to sponsors and exhibitors than other conference organizers and includes many executive sponsorship features into basic Exhibitor Booth and Table Top sponsorships.
