Macular Degeneration Research Yields Results

In 2017, a team in Europe found a transformative therapy for a young boy with serious skin damage to 80% of his body. Now scientists are building on the gene therapy that was used for that child to tackle macular degeneration. 

With 200 million people impacted by macular degeneration world wide, a breakthrough of this sort would make a significant difference. 

“We believe that near-infrared stimulation is an important step towards providing useful vision to blind patients so that they can regain their ability to read or see faces,” said Daniel Hillier, head of the junior research group Visual Circuits and Repair at DPZ.
