Monika Fleckenstein

Clinician-scientist, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Bonn, Germany

Fleckenstein is a world expert in the field of AMD and retinal imaging, and her seminal research work has substantially contributed to the understanding of the disease manifestation and natural history of geographic atrophy. As the head of the Clinical Trial Center at the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Bonn, Germany, Fleckenstein has a special focus on the design, conduct, and analysis of interventional clinical trials of retinal disease therapies, and it’s this expertise in clinical trials that has led to her membership of the University of Bonn’s institutional review board/independent Ethics Committee. She is also a co-founder of Young European Retina Specialists (YOURS), an initiative to promote interaction and collaboration between young retinal specialists within Europe. In her free time, Fleckenstein loves to watch her children’s
