  Dr S King, Dr K Baillie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisor. Dr Ian MacCormick. Background. The eye provides a window through which structural and functional characteristics of blood vessels can be visualised and quantified using new technology.
  Using next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to investigate penetrance and phenotypic variation in inherited eye disease
  Dr C Toomes
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) result from mutations in over 250 different genes, many of them implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag et al 2015, 96:948-54).
