Diabetic retinopathy

We are pioneering new treatments for diabetic retinopathy. 

These include:

  • using new laser technologies and imaging techniques for guiding treatment
  • developing a new therapeutic for proliferative diabetic retinopathy based upon a molecule called opticin
  • (in conjunction with CADET) investigating whether copper chelators can be used as drugs to treat and/or prevent diabetic retinopathy.
