Our precious donors joined us for tours at the Katz building

Over the past month, two groups of precious donors came in for a tour at our lab in the Katz building. Dr. MacDonald and the lab members showed them around the lab and illustrated our ongoing research projects and clinical trials. Paul Crichton, our master’s student, presented his research results on investigating the underlying immune mechanisms of the retina when exposed to a viral vector for gene therapy treatment. His project has broad implications for the safety and efficacy of ocular gene therapies.

We had really great time meeting and talking with our donors. We would like to take the opportunity to thank our donors for their kind support of our research. We share the same hope that one day, we can provide effective treatment options for patients with inherited retinal dystrophies.

A sucessful meeting with the Bentley family
