Retinal Diseases

Close up eye and retina

Presented by the Clem Jones Centre for Regenerative Medicine

Associate Professor Nigel Barnett and Jason Limnios will present a public lecture on retinal diseases.

Nigel’s research focuses on the mechanisms underlying retinal degeneration and the development of innovative therapies for diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. In particular, he is investigating potential neuroprotective strategies to mitigate vision loss in these blinding conditions. Such strategies include novel antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents.

Jason is a stem cell biologist and has developed the Clem Jones Centre for Regenerative Medicine’s stem cell platform to generate retinal cells for human transplantation. He will present a summary of this research and discuss the path towards human clinical trials in Australia.

This public lecture will highlight the work of the Clem Jones Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
