People Power: changing the course of research

Venue: New Road Baptist Church, Bonn Square, Oxford, OX1 1LQ

Choroideremia is a degenerative condition that causes retinal cells in the back of the eye to slowly die off, eventually leading to blindness. When Emma Salisbury’s 4 year-old son was diagnosed, and a treatment did not exist, Emma, her family and friends raised £300,000 for research resulting in a gene therapy treatment for Choroideremia, now in its clinical trials. Join Emma Salisbury, Michele Acton from Fight for Sight and Dr Alun Barnard to hear how the determination of one family has had a ripple effect that will change the lives of many people.

IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation when you book.

There may be tickets available on the door – spaces may be reallocated if ticket holders are late.
