          Our aim is to identify new genes and proteins implicated in retinal diseases, which will in turn tell us more about normal eye function. Ultimately we hope to use the knowledge generated to contribute to the search for therapies for human blindness.  We have recently used a classical positional cloning strategy to identify the genes involved in the RP9, RP13 and RP18 forms of dominant Retinitis pigmentosa. A similar approach is being applied to loci for familial exudative vitreo-retinopathy…
