Queen's Ophthalmology Research Day

This year's Queen's Ophthalmology Research Day took place in-person at the Donald Gordon Centre on Wednesday May 25th, with special guest Dr Cindy Hutnik delivering the RMH Pinkerton Lecture on work in "Innovations in Wound Modulation for Glaucoma Surgery."

The top prize for resident research was awarded to Dr Tiandra Ceyhan (PGY3) for her work on Vision Rehabilitation training across Canadian Ophthalmology residency programs. Dr Rachel Martin (PGY2) was awarded second place for her work on the comparative effectiveness of newer oral diabetes medications, and Dr Alison Banwell (PGY3) took home the third place prize for her survey of the utility of telemedicine in a cornea practice.

The day also featured talks from our Clinician Scientist and incoming Research Director Dr Jacob Rullo, two of his masters students in the school of biomedical and molecular sciences, Cassie Brand and Kabeer Thaker, as well as one of his collaborators, Dr Kimberly Dunham-Snary
