NIHR Moorfields Biomedical Research Centre
We are the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. Our Centre is dedicated to vision research.
Established in 2007, we were awarded NIHR funding for a third consecutive five-year term in 2017 to support and further develop our research strategy.
Pioneering research is fundamental if we are to offer meaningful benefits to patients. Research at our site is renowned for its initiation of new, far-reaching therapeutic areas and its efforts to make significant improvements in preventing and treating eye conditions.
We continue to prioritise areas where there is unmet patient need, and where we have an outstanding track record of translational achievement and expertise at an international level.
For our latest Research Spotlight – our series of Q&As focused on research at Moorfields and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology – we talk to Dr Dolores Conroy about ORNATE-India, a collaborative study study that aims to tackle diabetes-related vision impairment in India. Read more
