Dr. Alan Franklin is a physician with Diagnostic & Medical Clinic and the Founder and CEO of ForwardVue Pharma. ForwardVue has developed an innovative approach with small molecule technology to develop a more safe, effective, and durable treatment option for patients with wet macular degeneration & diabetic macular edema. His team has proposed treatments, which are in the pre-clinical phases, that would reduce the number of injections a patient receives annually for these diseases by 75%.

“Save Your Vision month represents a great platform for people to become aware of common blinding diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease,” said Alan Franklin, MD, Ph.D. “ForwardVue Pharma’s vision is to develop a better treatment with fewer injections.”
Most recently, Dr. Franklin was awarded second place in The Winning Pitch Challenge which recognizes ophthalmologist innovators to accelerate the development of solutions that address significant unmet needs. Dr. Franklin will be a moderator and speaker at Wet AMD & DME Drug development in April and presenting in London at Ophthalmic Drugs in November.
