Lister Research Prize Fellowship 2022: Dr Anthony Khawaja

23 June 2022

Congratulations to Dr Khawaja for being awarded the Lister Research Prize Fellowship 2022

Dr Anthony Khawaja

The Fellowship recognises excellence in early-career biomedical science. The award recognises Dr Khawaja's work to identify many new genetic markers of glaucoma and to build prediction tools that will enable population screening for early detection and more personalised glaucoma care, saving sight and considerable cost.

Dr Khawaja said:

It’s a huge privilege to be awarded the Lister Institute Prize, and I’m excited at the doors this will open. It will support me hiring a senior bioinformatician to manage my growing team and data resources. In the longer term, the flexible funding will massively accelerate new collaborations and testing of new ideas.
