Professor Andrew Lotery leads the vision research team in the University of Southampton. Working with other research institutions increases the potential of a cure, or improved treatment, for age-related macular degeneration and other blinding retinal diseases.
Your generous support has helped our vision science research team grow. We now have five senior scientists with their own groups training students and encouraging our amazing junior scientists to excel in their projects.
Please view Professor Lotery's University page to see details of research and papers published.
The aims of the vision research group are as follows:
To perform world class research to create better treatments and thus prevent blindness
To achieve this by attracting sufficient funding to allow the research to proceed quickly
To train the next generation of academic ophthalmologists and visual scientists
To disseminate our research findings in leading research journals
- To work as a team to achieve these goals
