Test tube bottles

Back in February, in a post noting Rare Disease Day, I mentioned how the Foundation’s research has applications that go beyond our purview, mainly because the retina is, in fact, neural tissue, or an extension of the brain. So some treatments we fund may someday help people with conditions unrelated to the eye.

Well, this post, over at The Wall Street Journal , plays on that same theme while featuring Joshua Boger, a gentleman we’ll honor with a Visionary Award at our upcoming Boston Dining in the Dark. I invite you to take a look at the Journal post.
