Bequest Information Session

Our first bequest morning tea for 2014 kicked off on Tuesday 8 April with presentations from Associate Professor Ian Trounce, who discussed his fascinating work which uses the eye as a platform for looking at ageing diseases involving both the eye and brain, such as glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

He was joined by Sandra Staffieri, a Clinical and Research Orthoptist with our Clinical Genetics Unit, who spoke about her experience in diagnosing and treating retinoblastoma, a common form of eye cancer affecting children.

It was an informative morning, giving supporters the chance to learn more about the scope of eye research at CERA, and to take a tour of some of our labs and facilities.
