President’s Letter

Esen K. Akpek, MD

It is my pleasure and highest honor to serve as the President of the Foster Ocular Immunology Society, and to welcome you to our website.

Our organization started as a group of ophthalmologists who received fellowship training in ocular immunology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear by Dr. Foster, who has revolutionized the field with his contributions to teaching, research, and clinical care. We have since expanded worldwide to include all ophthalmologists who have received training in ocular immunology.

We aim to facilitate the exchange of research and clinical care regarding ocular immunology. We also strive to honor Dr. Foster and to continue his legacy.

Esen K. Akpek, MD
President of the Foster Ocular Immunology Society,
Bendann Professor of Ophthalmology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
