ISGEDR 2021 Lausanne

Dear colleagues and friends,

I have the privilege to announce the 22nd ISGEDR Meeting, which will be held hybrid (virtual and in person) from September 2nd to 4th 2021 in Lausanne, Switzerland, jointly with the European Retinoblastoma Group (EURbG), the Société de Génétique Ophtalmologique Francophone (SGOF), and the European Reference Network dedicated to Rare Eye Diseases (ERN-EYE). The scientific program promises to be outstanding, covering the hotest topics in ocular genetics and retinoblastoma. This will include three named lectures, the Jules-François Lecture by Jean Bennett and Albert Maguire, the Franceschetti Medal and Lecture by Ian MacDonald and the Ellsworth Lecture by David Abramson. Looking forward to meeting you soon.

Francis Munier President of ISGEDR

Lausanne – The Olympic Capital

Lausanne rises elegantly in terraces on three hills above the north shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland’s French-speaking region. High bridges span the gorges of two rivers that cut through the city, combining with the steep rise from the lakeshore to give Lausanne a dramatic and scenic terrain with views of the Savoy Alps across the lake. An old university city and now a busy commercial one, it is popular for congresses, trade fairs, and conventions, with a number of outstanding meeting venues. Lausanne is the world headquarters of the Olympic Committee, and an Olympic museum is among its most popular tourist attractions.

The Romans established a trading colony here in the first century BC, and by the Middle Age, Lausanne’s cathedral was already important as a pilgrimage stop on the Way of St. James. To sense this old city, wander the winding streets below the cathedral; and to capture the elegance of its late-18th-century grandeur as a highlight of the Swiss Riviera, descend to the shore where Belle Époque hotels line its lakeside promenade.
