MDBR - CRB1 degenerative retinal disease

Two $50,497 grants are available for work toward treatments for CRB1 retinal disease. Applications including gene therapy, CRISPR, cell therapy or other methods that will halt the progression of CRB1 retinal disease and ultimately restore retinal function will be considered. CRB1 retinal disease is a rare disease causing Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) or Cone Rod Dystrophy. Children with CRB1 are blind or visually impaired from a very early age (at birth in LCA) and most are Braille readers and white cane users. This grant is made possible by Team Bike4Sight and the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation
