A report from the Vision Institute in Paris. Join us for a behind the scenes look at the research performed using the Artificial Street and Homelab!
A stone’s throw away from the historical entrance of the Quinze-Vingts national eye hospital, in a small road in Paris’ 12th arrondissement, the Vision Institute with its glass facades and modern architecture suddenly comes into view. At this research center dedicated to eye diseases, fifteen teams are working towards understanding these conditions: age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and diabetic retinopathy… and how to treat them.
In their toolbox, innovative techniques such as the artificial retina, optogenetics, cell and gene therapies, retinal imaging, high-throughput screening… And, above all, the technological platforms of the company Streetlab, located in the very heart of the building. Their purpose? To further the Institute's applied research, and to aid the design of innovative solutions and the evaluation of products and services to improve the autonomy of people with visual impairment.
