Grzegorz Łabuz, Early Stage Researcher of the AGEYE Marie Curie ITN has defended his PhD at Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His research project is entitled “Intraocular scattering through different optical designs” and was carried out under the supervision of Dr. Thomas van den Berg, Dr. Nicolaas Reus, Prof. Jan van Meurs, Prof. Norberto López-Gil, and Dr. Fernando Vargas-Martín.

The main objective of this project was to measure optical quality (both in vivo and in vitro) of different optical designs, with a focus on intraocular and contact lenses, and to determine sources of increased intraocular scatter in pseudophakic eyes.

This scientific work has been possible thanks to the Ageye Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission (FP7-PEOPLE-ITN-2013-608049).
