An Oxford Martin School visiting fellowship has enabled two academics to kickstart an experimental approach to tackling a form of blindness that affects one in four thousand people worldwide.

 

Dr Sonia Trigueros, Co-Director of the Oxford Martin School Programme in NanoMedicine, is collaborating with the University of Barcelona’s Professor Gemma Marfany, a human molecular geneticist, to study whether nanotechnology can be used to treat the hereditary retinal disorder retinitis pigmentosa.
