Retina Discovery Group
GROUNDBREAKING RETINAL RESEARCH
We are a research group based at Moorfields Eye Hospital and University College London. Our team and global collaborators carry out cutting edge retinal research.
We employ state-of-the-art technologies to answer research questions
Our team are experts at analysis of electronic medical records in ophthalmology, with several publications on different retinal conditions
We use artificial intelligence for prediction of patient outcomes and automation of clinical and research tasks.
From genome-wide association studies to polygenic risk scores, our team is skilled at analsis of vast genomic information.
We have experience conducting clinical trials, collaborating with pharma companies and reading centres. We were the first group to conduct a synthetic clinical trial in ophthalmology!
We translate research into clinically relevant histopathological assays to discover previously unknown biological pathways.
Models of Disease
We have access to a number of “disease in a dish” models that replicate key human diseases that we use for phase 0 clinical trials and hypothesis testing.
Ophthalmology + data science + basic science
We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
That’s why we combine different scientific methodologies and teams from different disciplines to develop the best solutions to the most pressing problems in medical retina.
