The head of ophthalmology at Flinders University has received a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) award for his investigation into genetic solutions for glaucoma.
Progress has been made in the effort to predict a person’s risk of developing glaucoma, after Australian research discovered new genetic markers related to the disease.
It takes a collaborative effort, supported by strong protocols, to provide the gold standard of glaucoma care that patients living in regional and remote Australia deserve.
The eyesight of millions may be saved thanks to Flinders University’s visionary genetic research which has been awarded more than $9 million in federal funding.
There is no cure for glaucoma but researchers hope that, through gene sequencing and stem cell work, they will be able to find ways to better treat those with the condition.
