RPB researchers are working to understand and prevent macular degeneration, to halt its progression, and to develop optical devices to offset vision loss.
RPB-supported researchers at the University of Southern California Roski Eye Institute conducted the human trial.
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.
The model will allow researchers to better assess treatments for this hard-to-study cause of blindness.
The findings may have significant therapeutic implications for AMD, the most common cause of elderly blindness in the developed world
At the ARVO Inaugural Press Conference, three RPB-funded scientists pushing the boundaries of imaging, early detection, regeneration.
