VIOBIO Lab has hosted two European Project Meetings in the last weeks: MyFun Marie Curie ITN and IMCUSTOMEYE H2020 Innovation Action Meeting
The first commercialization meeting of the H2020 Innovation Action IMCUSTOMEYE took place last week at the Institute of Optics (CSIC) led by IROC Science. The IMCUSTOMEYE consortium consists of 10 partners, from 6 different countries and different fields, academic, clinical and industrial.
The IMCUSTOMEYE project will develop a new optical imaging system that will allow to obtain biomarkers to improve diagnosis of certain ocular pathologies, and the development of customize treatments such as refractive surgery, cataract surgery and corneal treatments. The new instrument will provide biomechanical parameters, which will allow to plan treatments based on the prediction of the corneal response.
VioBio Lab also hosted the MSC ITN MyFun Summer School and Annual Meeting (16-19 October) in Madrid. The program was focused on applications of optical technologies in ophthalmology and novel treatments for myopia. The meeting included invited lectures and talks from MyFun Marie Curie Principal Investigators, VioBio Lab Members and Predoctoral Fellows, as well as an outreach activity by IOSA Student Chapter.
MyFUN (“Myopia: Fundamental Understanding Needed”) is an In Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020, comprising 7 European universities, research institutions and companies. The project envisages a wide variety of activities such as secondments, training modules, conferences and summer schools with the aim of training ESR in the field of myopia.
