Nurturing a new generation of scientists is a vital investment in the future of retinal disease research, so we are delighted to be funding, in collaboration with the Macular Society, a new PhD studentship at Oxford University, supervised by Professor Robert MacLaren.
In recent years there has been a huge acceleration into different treatment approaches for IRDs and the underlying causes of progressive sight loss. It’s an incredibly exciting time, but we need to keep the momentum going.
Nurturing a new generation of scientists is vital to the future of retinal disease research. We have recently teamed up with the Macular Society to fund a record three PhD studentships. These early career scientists will take the baton of sight loss research into the future.
With your support we can fund even more scientists and even more research. I know that times are so tough for everyone at the moment, but if you are able to make a donation, we can make sure that research continues and treatments are found faster.
