Retina Foundation of Canada, it gives us great pleasure to introduce Dr. Gallie as the one of the recipients of the 2017 Senior Clinical Research Grant of the Retina Foundation of Canada.
The value of the research grant is $20,000 for their project titled, “Liquid Biopsy for non-invasive genomic analysis of ocular tumours”.
The Retina Foundation of Canada is a national organization dedicated to fighting retinal disease and preserving vision. Supporting the efforts of Canadian researchers, who are investigating retinal diseases, has been one of the early initiatives of the Foundation.
Congratulations Dr. Gallie, we look forward to your research project and future publications or presentations.
The Retina Foundation of Canada has completed another successful year – helping to increase awareness of retinal diseases, and to assist in the financing of the education of current and future retinal surgeons.
We are proud to be a trans-Canada foundation – our medical advisory committee is drawn from all parts of Canada, and our research grants and fellowships are awarded across Canada.
Don’t worry, if you missed it. Photos, videos and transcripts will be available.
Participants had great things to say about how much they learned, how important understanding retina diseases is for those afflicted and how effective prevention is. They also expressed the hope that the Foundation would be able to continue its mission of educating and creating awareness of retina diseases.
