A study from an RPB-supported researcher at Northwestern University School of Medicine could speed up the diagnosis of retinal diseases.
Vision scientists who have received RPB funding will help lead all five research teams, which will seek to accelerate development of regenerative treatments for blindness.
The first patient receives an FDA-approved gene therapy for inherited retinal disease at Mass. Eye and Ear.
RPB-supported researchers made a critical discovery about the gene mutation that causes many retinal degenerative diseases, opening the door for a new line of research into potential treatments.
RPB-supported researchers make progress in characterizing the genetic components of Usher syndrome.
The findings may have significant therapeutic implications for AMD, the most common cause of elderly blindness in the developed world
