BiographyMy research focuses on treating age related macular degeneration (AMD), the commonest cause of blindness in the elderly. My team’s research has led to innovations in understanding and treating this disease. I was awarded the Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ Nettleship medal for my genetic research into AMD and my Trust’s Innovation award for developing AMD clinical services. I have published over 168 papers. I have contributed to the NIHR as regional specialty lead for the clinical research network. My team have performed the most clinical trials of any investigator in our NIHR/Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility. I sit on the NIHR Academic Training panel and mentor all NIHR ophthalmic academic clinical fellows and lecturers in Wessex. Patients impact my research through trial steering committee membership of my NIHR funded clinical trials. As research chair of two national research charities I helped set patient led priorities through the James Lind Alliance.
