World-first DNA bank to help save sight of millions

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.

Led by Flinders Professor of Ophthalmology Jamie Craig, who has a long track record in investigating this highly heritable disease, the five-year program will use CRISPR/Cas editing and next-generation gene sequencing approaches and run the world’s only DNA bank of patients to understand advanced glaucoma genetics.
