On Tuesday the 31st of March 2015, the School of Optometry and Vision Science held an alumni event that showcased the work of some of its most promising MSc and PhD researchers. The evening was an enormous success. Displaying talent and innovation in research, the presenters engaged their audience with a range of topics that included the secret world of melanocytes, they discussed new ways to assess glaucoma structure-function and argued that in visual field testing, size does matter.
The evening supper was in uproar with a barrage of laughter and stimulating discussion as alumni, staff and students exchanged ideas about the evening presentations as well as other research happening in optometry and vision science.
The student presentations were outstanding. Of particular note and recipient of the first prize accolade was Ms Angelica Ly, who presented her research into the multimodal markers of macular degeneration. Angelica is supervised by Professor Michael Kalloniatis and Dr Lisa Nivison-Smith from the Centre for Eye Health.
The School’s thriving postgraduate community is supported by a dedicated team of academics that operate within an internationally networked community.
