Talk to us about

  • The BIENCO Consortium Project. We are developing a bioengineered cornea that will help improve access to tissue and reduce preventable global corneal blindness by turning one cornea into 30.
  • The Hygelix project. We are developing a glue scaffold that will make it easier for surgeons to perform a specific surgery called an endothelial keratoplasty. There are 5.2 million people around the world waiting for this surgery that we can help.
  • Dr Srujana Sahebjada’s comprehensive keratoconus research program and work on the Keratoconus International Consortium.
