Collaboration Grant Program

RReSTORe is pleased to offer Collaboration Grants to RReSTORe members who seek to address the questions and challenges that our consortium has collectively prioritized as being critical to the clinical translation of vision restoration treatments for optic neuropathy, as outlined in our White Paper. 

RReSTORe Collaboration Grants are made possible by generous support from the BrightFocus Foundation.

Congratulations to the recipients of 2023 RReSTORe Collaboration Grants!
