Update from Dr. Mary Sunderland
In 2017, The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) Canada is thrilled to announce the Restore Vision 20/20 Initiative, which is a new $2.5 million funding commitment to drive the development of therapies for people living with late-stage retinal degenerative diseases.
The goal of Restore Vision 20/20 is to support world-class research teams with the capacity to initiate clinical trials to test innovative treatments for retinal degeneration. To achieve this goal, Restore Vision 20/20 will fund essential research, facilitate strategic international collaborations and provide financial, technical, administrative, and commercialization support.
Applications are now open. The Letter of Intent deadline is April 3, 2017.
