We are hosting this event to mark Aniridia Day - an annual chance to bring together the worldwide aniridia community in solidarity:
- people who have aniridia
- their relatives
- researchers into the condition.
Together we can improve understanding of aniridia, find ways to manage its effects and find (funding for) treatments.
European Aniridia Conference
The event is also a substitute for the European Aniridia Conference which we hoped to hold in London this summer. It has been delayed until June/July/August 2021. More details to be announced soon.
