St. Albert’s Day
Each fall Loyola University Medical Center celebrated its annual St. Albert’s day research symposium showcasing current research efforts within the university. The Department of Ophthalmology was well represented at St. Albert’s day with presentations in subspecialty areas of ophthalmic pathology, ophthalmic drug delivery, pediatrics, cornea and retina.

We look forward to continued growth in our research program as a means to improve patient outcomes through bench to bedside innovation in optimizing clinical care.
