Congratulations to Professor Jenny Wilkinson-Berka on the award of almost 1 million dollars from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) New York to commence in October 2017. The grant is for 3 years and titled, Boosting the immune system to treat diabetic retinopathy.

The purpose of the JDRF award is to determine if boosting immunosuppressive T regulatory cells (Tregs) reduces the vision-threatening damage to the retinal vasculature that can occur in people with diabetes.

medal from Professor Stephen Davis,
previous BGRF medal winner.
This year’s Bethlehem Griffiths Research Foundation (BGRF) Medal has been awarded to Professor Terence O’Brien in recognition of his internationally-acclaimed research that has transformed the lives of many people with epilepsy as well as traumatic brain injury, dementias and brain tumours.

Patients with difficult to control, drug-resistant epilepsy now have access to more effective treatment options, including surgery, and a better understanding of the adverse effects of long-term medication use. Women with epilepsy have also benefited and now have better information about minimising the risk of medication on their unborn child while maximising the chance of seizure control.
