Our Biomedical Research Centre is dedicated to vision research. After two consecutive five-year terms starting back in 2007, we successfully received a new NIHR award in 2017 for another five years to support and further develop our research strategy. We continue to prioritise areas where there is unmet patient need and where we have an outstanding track record of translational achievement and expertise at an international level.
Around our research, we have built infrastructure, we are growing strategic partnerships and collaborations and building capacity to support and consolidate all the links of the translational bridge. As a result, new treatment techniques and practices that improve patient health are being brought through to clinical and surgical practice as quickly as possible, thereby benefiting patients, as well as the NHS, universities and the UK as a whole.
