"The MacLaren lab is well known for both the quality of its research and for being a great place to work and study. I spent a productive year in Oxford as a Clinical Research Fellow, combining research with clinical work in vitreoretinal surgery. This was a unique opportunity for me to consolidate and combine my previous clinical and research experience. It provided me with a sound base on which to establish my clinical and clinical research career at a more senior level. Furthermore, it provided an opportunity to establish ongoing research collaborations and friendships with colleagues from around the world."
