In collaboration with the Macular Society, Retina UK and the Royal National Institute of Blind People, Genomics England is hosting a webinar series focused on sight loss and genomic research. This webinar series aims to create a forum for the sight loss community and researchers, raising awareness of the latest scientific developments and shaping the direction of future research initiatives through patient-researcher dialogues.
