Alastair Innes

EdinburghUniversity

Posted: Dec 12, 2012


“Almost £60 million of awards from the Medical Research Council (MRC) will help scientists gain fresh insights into illnesses and inherited disorders.

The funding to the University’s MRC Human Genetics Unit and the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) will help doctors develop and deliver new tests and therapies for patients.

It will boost research into conditions such as schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis and genetic eye disorders including retinitis pigmentosa, coloboma and anophthalmia.

Dr Chris Boyd, Dr Alastair Innes and Dr Steve Cunningham tell us about a groundbreaking gene therapy trial for adults and children with cystic fibrosis (CF) - coordinated by the UK Cystic Fibrosis Gene Therapy Consortium (GTC).” - EdinburghUniversity
