At the Aniridia Network UK (ANUK) Conference 2013 we announced that ten top experts in the UK have agreed to help us understand the: causes, symptoms, assessment, prognosis and treatment of aniridia. Professor Khaw is among them. Members can ask them questions via our enquiries service (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Among his other roles, Professor Khaw is currently Director of the Biomedical Research Centre (BMRC) funded by National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) at Moorfields Eye Hospital/University College London Institute of Ophthalmology. He is professor of ocular healing and glaucoma and has a long track record of developing new treatments from laboratory through to international clinical trials.
Congratulations also came from our officials and members. Jenny said, “I know for definite that he is solely responsible for the fact that I still have some remaining useful vision – he has done numerous surgeries on both my eyes since I was 12. So happy all his hard work and dedication has been recognised!”
