Genetic research into KC

Postby Anne Klepacz » Sat 06 Mar 2021 5:42 pm

Some of you will have taken part in the genetic study of keratoconus at Moorfields, which began in a small way many years ago and expanded to become an international project. The results have just been published and you can read the press release here.

The Moorfields research team are grateful to all the patients who took part in the research.
When we can finally stage our postponed national conference which should have taken place on 6/6/2020, we hope the principal researchers will give a presentation explaining more of the implications of the findings.
