If you would like to know more about our most recent scientific publications, please click here. For a complete list, please see our list of publications. If you would like to meet our team, this list of presentations will tell you where they will be appearing in the near future.

Recent publications and upcoming presentations are posted on LinkedIn. We post regular updates on conferences and meetings that we will be attending.

NIIOS R&D shares its knowledge with a broad audience on the ocular enucleation and corneal preparation and transplantation techniques we develop. We also keep those who are interested informed on the latest state of affairs in advanced lamellar keratoplasty.

Our team of ophthalmologists, eye bank specialists and researchers publish scientific papers and give lectures, presentations and workshops during leading global conferences and meetings.
