Ulverscroft Vision Research Group (UVRG)
The Ulverscroft Vision Research Group (UVRG) is an interdisciplinary research grouping at the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
Funded by the Ulverscroft Foundation, it aims to strengthen research that improves understanding, prevention or management of eye disease and visual impairment in children and to build capacity in academic paediatric ophthalmology.
The UVRG is an example of cross-cutting research, currently funding expertise and research in epidemiology, ophthalmology and neuroscience. But the group is by no means limited to ICH/GOSH or to these disciplines. We aim to support the best quality research in paediatric ophthalmology anywhere in the UK in any discipline, and are keen to share resources with other researchers.
The group is directed by Professor Jugnoo Rahi.
The UVRG currently funds a number of posts, including:
- Phillippa Cumberland - MRC Centre of Epidemiology for Child Health
- Daniel Kelberman - ICH Developmental Biology Unit
- Ameenat Lola Solebo - Clinical Research Training Fellow at MRC Centre of Epidemiology for Child Health
It has also funded two research fellowships and is funding a joint fellowship with the MRC.
