Abstract

Professor Paul Baird specialises in identifying and understanding how genetic changes associated with common eye diseases including age-related macular degeneration and keratoconus lead to vision loss and blindness. This fellowship will allow him to uncover novel genetic contributors in these diseases using next-generation molecular techniques. He will assess functionality of these variants, allowing him to translate these findings back to the clinic allowing personalised treatment options.
