Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, and delegates who joined us in Boston for the 4th Gene Therapy for Ophthalmic Disorders Summit! If you are interested in the 2024 event, please get in touch at

Validate Novel Administration Routes to the Eye, Extrapolate Effectively from Preclinical Models to Inform Safety & Efficacy, and Define Relevant Endpoints for Clinical Trials to Transform Rare & Common Eye Disease Treatment

Gene therapy represents the next frontier in ophthalmology. With recent rapid technological advancements, 100+ programs in active preclinical and clinical development, promising clinical trial results for both rare and common disease, a paradigm shift in how visual impairment is treated is well under way.

At the interface between innovation in preclinical research and those at the forefront of clinical development lies the 4th Annual Gene Therapy for Ophthalmic Disorders Summit that saw thought leaders from leading biopharma and academic institutes working to transform eye disease treatment.

“The summit is a great gathering of leaders in the development of gene therapies for ocular indications; a place to interact and exchange thoughts on current concepts and concerns in the field.”

Dan Chung, Chief Medical Officer, SparingVison 

Over 3 days, 30+ expert speakers from groups targeting both rare and common diseases shared new data, hosted exciting panel discussions, and facilitated deep dive sessions into key challenges facing the field. 2023 was your year’s only guide to:


Define relevant preclinical and clinical endpoints


Explore novel routes of administration to the front and back of the eye


Improve the translatability piece of your preclinical model work

Attendees in 2023 were granted access to keynote plenaries from leading gene therapy figures, focused discussions addressing the most pressing challenges facing programs, and highly appraised networking opportunities with 130+  peers, and were left with the actionable tools, insights, and connections needed to enhance their ophthalmology work.

As the field matures and becomes more sophisticated in its approach to drug development, make sure you join us next year to stay abreast of the latest developments.
