Macular degeneration and ophthalmogenetics
Carel Hoyng's research group specializes in studying the genetics of retinal disorders. The two main research activities are age-related macular degeneration , a research program which has been started to develop better visual rehabilitation, and Ophthalmogenetics.
Jeroen Klevering's group founded the RP5000 consortium, a collaboration between ophthalmologists and geneticists in the Netherlands. In preparation of future clinical trials, they are developing and implementing new imaging techniques for the comprehensive functional assessment of the retina.
