50th Anniversary Fall Scientific Symposium Preliminary Program 
Subject to change

Assistant Fall Meeting Chair

 

We invite you to attend the 50th Anniversary American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) Fall Scientific Symposium in San Francisco! This golden jubilee celebrates the rich history of the organization and is an exceptional forum of innovation and knowledge exchange in oculofacial plastic surgery.

The program includes special 50th anniversary keynote addresses from two of the most distinguished scholars in life sciences and medicine. Jennifer Doudna, inventor of CRISPR-Cas9 DNA editing technology, will share background and forward thinking on how this breakthrough may transform healthcare. From the opposite end of the healing spectrum, renowned author and physician Abraham Verghese will discuss key topics in humanism. These keynotes will inspire and remind that being a physician is the most profound job in the world.

We are also delighted to have distinguished invited speakers from neurosurgery and dermatology, specialties that interface with oculofacial plastic surgery. Ian Dunn, chair of neurosurgery at Oklahoma University will share perspectives on cranio-orbital and other skull base disease. Chris Zachary, chair of dermatology at UC Irvine will offer updates and pearls in treating facial skin conditions and scars.

Two of the most notable ASOPRS members – Rick Anderson and Bill Nunery – will deliver perhaps their final address from the ASOPRS podium. Both retired from prolific careers this year and will share tips and reflections from four decades of oculofacial practice each!

In a special history session on Thursday, ophthalmology luminaries David Parke, George Bartley, Allen Putterman, and Tamara Fountain, among others, will trace the beginnings of oculoplastic and orbital surgery and the growth of the ASOPRS. International ophthalmic plastic surgery leaders will describe the status of the specialty in their regions. On Friday, David Reifler will introduce his 50th Anniversary ASOPRS book that codifies key events and figures of the organization.

The abstract review committee appraised nearly four hundred high quality submissions!

In addition to these scientific presentations covering orbit, thyroid eye, eyelid, lacrimal, oncology, practice management, and aesthetics, interspersed expert panels will add variety. One lineup will tackle difficult cases, another will explore financial practice models, and a third panel will parley brow-lifting approaches.

John Fezza will deliver the Henry I. Baylis Cosmetic Surgery Award Lecture. Posters and videos covering an array of topics will be available digitally at exhibit hall kiosks and through the meeting App.

ASOPRS is a world leader in oculofacial plastic and orbital surgery. The first half-century of the society was incredible and this program should inspire that the future is bright. We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 ASOPRS symposium!

Special 50th Anniversary Keynote Speakers

Jennifer Doudna, PhD

As an internationally renowned professor in the Departments of Chemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology at U.C. Berkeley, Doudna and her colleagues rocked the research world in 2012 by describing a simple way of editing the DNA of any organism using an RNA-guided protein found in bacteria. This technology, called CRISPR-Cas9, has opened the floodgates of possibility for human and non-human applications of gene editing, including assisting researchers in the fight against HIV, sickle cell disease and muscular dystrophy. Doudna is an Investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, the National Academy of Inventors and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She is also a Foreign Member of the Royal Society, and has received many other honors including the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, the Heineken Prize, the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award and the Japan Prize. She is the co-author with Sam Sternberg of “A Crack in Creation”, a personal account of her research and the societal and ethical implications of gene editing.

Abraham Verghese, MD

Dr. Verghese is a nationally bestselling author and a prominent voice in medicine with a uniquely humanistic view of the future of healthcare. He received the National Humanities Medal from President Obama, “for reminding us that the patient is the center of the medical enterprise.” His memoirs and novels on medical themes have sold millions of copies, topped bestseller lists, and earned major movie deals, while his New York Times articles arguing for greater focus on the physical patient have made waves in the medical community. His warmth and vision as well as his world-class gifts as a storyteller make him a powerful speaker both to healthcare professionals and the patient in all of us.
