A single cell separator for ophthalmic research

Generous donations to our appeal in 2015 raised over £150,000 for a single cell separator.

The single cell separator will enable researchers at Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology to take their research to a new level by studying the genetic make-up of individual cells which are diseased. This will allow them to discover the causes of diseases and ultimately develop therapies to prevent or treat them, potentially saving the sight of people with devastating eye conditions such as retinoblastoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.

I would like to thank all who so generously donated towards the funding of this amazing piece of equipment that I believe will help us to save the sight and lives of many.  The response has been fantastic – thank you so much!
