This webinar will provide an exploration of topics relating to development of ophthalmic therapies, with applications of conventional drugs or devices, and novel biologic therapeutics. Discussion of each panelist’s career journey, challenges, and successes will give the audience a better understanding and appreciation of the scientific and regulatory process, and also provide insight for young scientists interested in a career in translational research or drug/device development.
1. Gain a better understanding of the drug/device/biologic development, including drug delivery, and clinical and regulatory process
2. Learn about academic and non-academic career choices
3. Learn from women who have had diverse careers in the vision sciences (as entrepreneurs or clinician-scientists, in industry, academics, or government) of the important career decisions they made to excel in their respective endeavors.
