Grant to Study Genetics of Retinal Detachment
We received grant support from the Fight for Sight organization to study a new form of inherited retinal detachment.
In this family, children develop severe retinal detachments. Our genetic analysis suggests that a novel gene may be the cause, and efforts to identify the gene variation are underway.
Our hope is that this research will help other people with more common, non-inherited forms of retinal detachment.
