Liverpool Research Eye Bank, United Kingdom

Registration Status: Completed

Objective: The Liverpool Research Eye Bank was set up to support research projects by providing them with eye tissue. Eyes that are donated to the Research Eye Bank are used in research projects across the United Kingdom and EU following an application process. The Liverpool Research Eye Bank supports the research that will help lead to significant advances in our understanding and treatment of these sight threatening diseases and may improve the quality of life for many people. We collect mainly cadaveric tissue but will be expanding our capability to collect tissue/ fluids from living donors by the end of 2020.
