About the speaker
Dr Flora Hui is a clinician scientist with a particular interest in innovative methods to improve patient outcomes in optometry and ophthalmology and neuroprotectants for treating glaucoma.
She completed a Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy in fundamental sciences, concentrating on animal models of glaucoma and using the retina as a biomarker for the brain.
Dr Flora Hui conducted a world-first clinical trial investigating high-dose nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) as a neuroprotectant in human glaucoma, showing that nicotinamide could lead to early and significant improvements to visual function. In addition, building upon her preclinical work, she was involved in a landmark study investigating the use of hyperspectral retinal imaging to differentiate people who were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
