About our research

CERA is leading research into gene therapies that could slow down, or even halt, vision loss in patients with inherited retinal diseases (IRDs).

What you’ll see

  • Watch a video about how gene therapy works.
  • Learn more about the subgroups of inherited retinal diseases and their prevalence in Australia, as well as the phenotypic profile of Bietti Crystalline Dystrophy in Australian patients.
