Date for your 2017 diary: Rare Eye Disease Day

Published in Events on 10 November 2016

If you or anyone you care for suffers from a rare eye disease, then block Saturday 4 March 2017 out in your diary now – for that’s when patients and researchers from across the UK will meet at Manchester’s Nowgen Centre, for an afternoon of progress updates from some of the UK’s leading researchers and an opportunity for you to have your say about research.

Featured speakers include Professor Paul Bishop, Professor of Ophthalmology and Matrix Biology, and our Eye Theme Co-Leads Professor Andrew Webster who is Professor of Molecular Ophthalmology and Professor Graeme Black, Professor of Genetics and Ophthalmology.

There will also be an opportunity to get hands-on with TACTILE, the Whitworth’s contemporary textile resource featuring artists from its collection. Lunch and refreshments included.

This event is funded by NIHR Rare Diseases Translational Research Collaboration and made possible with the support of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
