New Treatments for Retinal Disease

The Departments of Pharmacology and Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Research Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have been awarded a $10.1 million grant from the National Eye Institute (NEI) to research and develop new treatments for diseases of the retina, a leading cause of blindness.

The NEI, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will award the grant over five years, funding the work of researchers in the Departments of Pharmacology, Ophthalmology, and Biomedical Engineering at the School of Medicine who are working in collaboration with the Retinal Therapeutics Study Group.

Conditions affecting the retina, the tissue in back of the eye responsible for vision, are a primary cause of blindness in adults over the age of 55.
