Harry's background is in Clinical Ophthalmology as a Specialist Registrar within the North London/Moorfields Eye Hospital training rotation.
Harry's research focusses on developing a new gene-therapy based treatment for dominant retinitis pigmentosa (RP) caused by defects in the rhodopsin gene. These mutations account for around a quarter of all cases of dominant RP and are one of the most common genetic cause of sight loss in the UK.
