Macular Degeneration Research Fund

Macular Degeneration Research Fund

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness among individuals aged 55 years and older in developed countries. In addition to our retinal stem cell and retinal transplant research, our team has made significant contributions to clinical trials establishing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) blockers as the new standard treatment for Wet-Age-Related Macular Degeneration. Your investment in retinal research today has tremendous influence on the care available tomorrow.
