FBC announced $1.67 million in funding for two Transformative Research Awards which will push the boundaries of vision science.
Dr. Marius Ueffing (University of Tübingen) is developing a novel neuroprotective drug therapy to reduce photoreceptor death and slow vision loss in inherited retinal diseases (IRDs),
Dr. Luis Alarcon-Martinez (Center for Eye Research Australia) is using cutting edge imaging technology to understand how disrupted blood supply causes optic nerve damage in glaucoma. His team of collaborators also includes Dr. Adriana Di Polo (University of Montreal).
