Ocular Research By Integrated Training And Learning

Project description

A multidisciplinary global training network is focusing on new treatments for eye disease

Visual information helps us to perform daily tasks, stay out of harm's way and recognise the face of an old friend in a crowd. The posterior segment of the eye is the region responsible for turning impinging light into electrical signals and is also the site of debilitating diseases like macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. ORBITAL has formed a consortium of 22 academic, clinical and industrial partners to train a new cohort of scientists in cross-disciplinary fields ranging from materials science to drug discovery. Cross-fertilisation should plant the seeds for advanced treatments of posterior segment ocular disease that accounts for more than half of the ocular conditions.
