The London Project to Cure Blindness aims to use Stem Cells to restore sight, prevent progression and ultimately improve the quality of life for patients with Age – Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
The London Project is a collaboration between Professor Pete Coffey from University College London and Dr Lyndon da Cruz a retinal surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital. The aim is to combine cutting edge knowledge and technology from the laboratory, clinic and operating theatre in order to accelerate the development of new treatments for AMD.
In 2011 The London Project received a generous and innovative offer of support in that we were given the opportunity to be the major beneficiary from money raised from charitable association with a Le Mans racing team – Storholm Racing. The London Project will organise a number of fund raising activities associated with this as well as raising awareness of the project and disease.
