NHMRC Grant for Dr Lauren Ayton

Dr Lauren Ayton has been awarded a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Investigator grant for her project entitled “Saving Sight Through Novel BioTech Innovations for Inherited Retinal Disease (IRD)”.

The project will build a clinical research database of people with IRD, discover more about links between genes and eye disease, develop new outcome measures for use in clinical trials, and support world-first clinical trials for IRD in Australia.

The grant will provide over AU$1.5M of funding to Dr Ayton’s program over five years.
