Retina Australia directs funds to scientific/medical research in Australia relevant to the causes, treatment, prevention or cure of inherited retinal diseases.
Priority will be given to studies of retinitis pigmentosa and other inherited retinal diseases and, to the extent that available funds permit, to age-related macular degeneration. The research may be basic or applied.
Research into diabetic retinopathy is not funded by Retina Australia, nor is research into behavioural and welfare aspects of retinal disease.
Funding & Duration
Funds will not normally be granted for more than one year, and will not normally exceed $40,000.
