New treatments for retinal disease including diabetic retinopathy and genetic eye disease such Retinitis Pigmentosa and Stargardt disease.
My long-term vision and goals include:
(i) Optimizing the clinical care of patients with retinal disease including:
(ii) Establishing a molecular genetic diagnosis in the majority of patients with inherited eye disease, helping to improve counseling, advice on prognosis, and identify patients with molecularly proven disease who may be eligible for current and future treatment trials.
(iii) Identify patients / genetic subtypes and time-points, which may be most appropriate for treatments, and identify reliable and sensitive outcome measures.
(iv) Assisting in the development of gene- and non-gene directed therapies to either significantly slow / halt disease progression or ideally improve visual function and subsequently being the clinical lead in undertaking rigorous clinical trials to ascertain their efficacy.
