This year LHAS will be hosting an event to honor and to support Dr. José-Alain Sahel as Chairman of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Ophthalmology, and UPMC Eye Center.

Join us for “Eyes on the Future Gala, Paris to Pittsburgh,” featuring classic Parisian cocktails, cuisine*, music and entertainment.

Dr. José-Alain Sahel is the global leader in translational research for treatments of currently untreatable, inherited and age-related ocular diseases. As founder and director of the Institute de la Vision in Paris, a world leading site for translational research in every area of science to restore vision, Dr. Sahel brings a strong neuroscience perspective to ophthalmology research, such as exploring the application of brain-computer interface technology, for which Pitt and UPMC are well known. Dr. Sahel, in sustaining his engagement with the Institute, is facilitating a new partnership with Pitt and UPMC to change vision science worldwide.
