As you know, the combined FLORetina – International Congress on OCT Angiography, En Face OCT and Advances in OCT will be in its Third Year this December 2023 (November 30 to December 3, 2023) in Rome. Professor Bruno Lumbroso created the annual International Congress on OCT Angiography, En Face OCT and Advances in OCT (ICOOR), which became the largest OCT/OCTA Congress in the world until 2020. Certainly, this global Congress has become one of the most successful, most-attended, and most educational meetings in the field of retinal imaging. Every December for eight years, more than 1,000 attendees enjoyed spending few days in Rome learning the latest advances in retinal imaging, from OCT to OCTA to adaptive optics to microperimetry, among others, and meeting new colleagues while rekindling with old ones. Since 2021, the ICOOR has been held in conjunction with the FLORetina Congress. The joint FLORetina – ICOOR Congress is directed by Professor Stanislao Rizzo of Italy.
To honor the outstanding contributions that Professor Lumbroso has made to the field of ocular imaging, we have established the Bruno Lumbroso Lecture at each International Congress on OCT Angiography in Rome. The Inaugural Bruno Lumbroso Lecture was delivered during the December 2018 Congress by Dr. SriniVas Sadda (USA), a distinguished clinician scientist selected by the Lumbroso Lecture Selection Committee. The second (2019) Lumbroso lecture was delivered by Professor Ursula Schmidt-Erfurth (Austria). The third (2020) Lumbroso Lecturer was Dr. Lawrence Yannuzzi (USA). In December 2021, during the first combined FLORetina – ICOOR, Professor James Fujimoto (USA) was selected as the 4th Lumbroso Lecturer. The fifth Lumbroso Lecturer was Dr. K. Bailey Freund (USA) who delivered the Lecture in December 2022.
We have just selected the Sixth Annual Lumbroso Lecturer for the 2023 joint FLORetina - ICOOR Congress (November 30 to December 3):
