The Walsh FFB Retinal Stem Cell Consortium Consolidated Final Report

Stem cells have the potential to replace damaged and/or dead photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelial cells. Advances in this technology will facilitate the preservation and restoration of useful vision in individuals affected by inherited orphan retinal degenerative diseases and geographic atrophy.
