CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2022-- Lineage Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE American and TASE: LCTX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing allogeneic cell therapies for unmet medical needs, today announced that Brian M. Culley, Lineage’s Chief Executive Officer, will present at the BTIG Virtual Ophthalmology Day, on November 29, 2022 at 12:00pm Eastern Time, in a fireside chat hosted by Yun Zhong, Ph.D., Director, Biotech Equity Research at BTIG. Mr. Culley will also be presenting at Cantor Fitzgerald’s Medical & Aesthetic Dermatology, Ophthalmology & MedTech Conference on December 8, 2022 at 1:45pm Eastern as part of the “Ophthalmology Panel, Vision For The Future: Dry AMD, Other Greenfield Opportunities, and Late-Stage Stories To Shake Things Up”. The panel will be hosted by Jennifer Kim, Vice President, Equity Research at Cantor Fitzgerald, and the conference is taking place at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, December 7-8, 2022.

“I look forward to the opportunity to discuss the evolving landscape in dry AMD, a disease for which there are currently no FDA-approved therapies and which has attracted significant investor attention as of late,” stated Brian M. Culley, Lineage CEO. “Atrophic AMD is a progressive disease that if left untreated can ultimately rob a person of their vision. It is increasingly positive for patients that new potential therapies for dry AMD are attracting mainstream interest, and I am excited at how a cell transplant approach can be more prominently featured in such conversations.”
