Press Releases CORE and Myopia Profile Form Alliance The aim is to expand clinical research and professional education capabilities. Published 2 months ago on December 1, 2020 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) WATERLOO, CANADA and BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA — The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) and Myopia Profile announced an alliance designed to expand both organizations’ services and reach. This unique venture brings together two groups both at the forefront of research and education in their respective fields. The affiliation will grow CORE’s already extensive clinical research capabilities, adding expertise in specialty lenses, gas permeable, orthokeratology and scleral contact lenses, provide Myopia Profile with priority access to a world-leading clinical research site, and further extend the professional and patient education capabilities for which each team is internationally known, including the areas of myopia management. The heads of CORE and Myopia Profile — Dr. Lyndon Jones and Drs. Paul and Kate Gifford, respectively — have a professional relationship dating back to the mid-1990s. They have often collaborated on projects, lectures and other initiatives designed to advance ocular health and science. “Our new alliance is a natural extension of our respect for one another, which has grown into friendship as the years have passed. We have long been aware of synergies in our work, along with areas where we can each extend the capabilities of the other. I’m delighted that the time is right for our respective organizations to take this step, and I am excited to see what we can achieve together,” said Dr. Jones. “We share many points of view with CORE—clinically and personally—making this partnership a natural evolution of our relationship. Paul and I are delighted to be able to work more closely with the wider team at CORE, and look forward to sharing the results of this joint venture with the profession,” said Dr. Kate Gifford. CORE and Myopia Profile will maintain their individual identities, facilities and staffing while pursuing projects together.
