Letter from the President Catania, Italy (January 28, 2023)

January 28, 2023
Filippo Drago
Dear colleagues, The XVI meeting of the Association of Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics (AOPT) will be held August 10-13, 2023, in a novel hybrid format that includes joint programming from China and the United States. A full 4-day in person meeting will be held at the Hilton Indianapolis in Indiana. A 1-day meeting will be held at He Medical University in Shenyang China. Joint symposia and talks will be shared between the meetings. Attendees may enjoy the full meeting in person in whichever city they desire or on-line. The Association expects roughly 125 talks and an equal number of posters in session that are of high interest and value to our international membership. Program committees in both the US and China have been working hard to bring content that bridges our understanding of cutting-edge research and developments in ocular pharmacology and therapeutics. With this meeting we hope to cross geographic and political barriers that may divide scientific people in the world. Best regards,
