MRC / Fight for Sight Clinical Research Training Fellow

  • Honorary Specialist Registrar, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London

Harry's background is in Clinical Ophthalmology as a Specialist Registrar within the North London/Moorfields Eye Hospital training rotation. Through joint funding from the Medical Research Council and Fight for Sight, Harry is currently working towards a DPhil under the supervision of Professor Robert MacLaren as part of a Clinical Research Training Fellowship at the University of Oxford. 

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.
