Hi everyone,

I have a great PhD opportunity for someone interested in a clinical-based project undertaking a prospective detailed phenotyping study focused on the different subtypes of CRB1-related retinal disease. We have a really strong multidisciplinary team working together on this project including Mr Rob Henderson at Moorfields and GOSH, Dr Tessa Dekker at UCL, Dr Pete Jones at City, and Dr John Greenwood at UCL. We will be testing new child-friendly vision tests and undertaking functional MRI alongside the more standard retinal structure and function tests.

Trainee ophthalmologists and all allied healthcare professionals including orthoptists, optometrists, clinical scientists, vision scientists- please apply if you are interested.

Closing date is 19th June. This studentship is kindly joint funded by Moorfields Eye Charity and Fight for Sight. Please share with your networks and do get in touch if you have any questions.
