Thanks to generous donations and income from membership subscriptions, trustees of the Nystagmus Network were able to allocate their full research budget to new and continuing nystagmus studies in 2017. Towards the end of the year an opportunity arose to fund an additional research project, likely to have a huge impact on the quality of life of people living with nystagmus. Trustees therefore decided to extend their financial commitment to research for the current year in order to initiate the project without delay. There will be a national press release to announce the detail of the new study soon.
Trustees have already agreed a further increase to their planned spend on research for 2018 in order to drive additional studies. None of this would be possible without the continuing commitment of our supporters and fundraisers and our long standing partnerships with the leading UK hospital and university teams working in the field of nystagmus.
You can help us continue to fund nystagmus research by fundraising or donating. Thank you.
