A real-world AI-based infrastructure for screening and prediction of progression in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) providing accessible shared care

I-SCREEN Project to Host First Face-to-Face Meeting in Vienna

After a successful online kick-off event in March, the I-SCREEN project will hold its first in-person meeting in Vienna, Austria, on May 29th, 2024. This meeting marks an important step in the project's efforts to improve eye health through the early detection and management of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

The upcoming meeting will bring together representatives from the twelve partner institutions, providing a chance for detailed discussions and the strengthening of working relationships. With a full-day packed agenda, the meeting will cover a broad range of topics, combining plenary sessions with time for discussions and reporting on progress in each project work package. Prof. Ursula Schmidt-Erfurth, the project coordinator, will open the meeting by presenting “State-of-the-art in AMD Research.” Following her, Prof. Hrvoje Bogunović will present on the topic: “Predictive Models in Early and Advanced AMD.”

Furthermore, all team members will have the opportunity to provide updates on the current status of their clinical trials ethics submissions and discuss the next steps to enroll the first patients in the clinical trial. Funded by the European Innovation Council, I-SCREEN aims to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide eye care professionals with advanced tools for the early diagnosis and intervention in AMD.

As the I-SCREEN project progresses, the commitment and cooperation among its partners remain strong. Stay tuned as we work towards improving eye care with I-SCREEN.
