Fighting Blindness is the only sight-loss charity in Ireland funding research into sight loss, having invested over €20 million in more than 115 research and clinical projects. We are seeing innovative and impactful research emerging from the labs that we invest in. Fighting Blindness is incredibly proud to contribute to the pioneering research work being undertaken at the Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin.

Today, we are delighted to share the second of three videos we filmed at the Trinity lab. Professor Matt Campbell and Dr Sophia Millington-Ward, Smurfit Institute of Genetics, School of Genetics and Microbiology, Trinity College Dublin, speak about their research and the role that Fighting Blindness has played in helping them to advance their work.

Without funding, there is no research.

The cure is waiting, we shouldn’t be.
