Research into Norrie disease is severely underfunded, and won’t happen unless we fund it.
The limited research into Norrie disease hearing loss has already made a difference but the only way we can get more answers and results is to get more research done.
Understanding the basic science of the hearing loss will enable researchers in the future to develop clinical trials of therapies to prevent the hearing loss from happening, or to slow down, or stop, the progression.
This will change the future for our blind community who have already lost one sense.
You can donate to the Research Fundraising Appeal here.
Imagine the difference these could make for families living with Norrie disease.
The Norrie Disease Foundation is guided by the Scientific Medical Advisory Board in scientific matters including research efforts and direction. Our board consists of renowned experts in the field and we are very grateful to them for giving their time and expertise.
If you are visiting this page as a family with a diagnosis of Norrie disease, we want you to know that you are not alone. The Norrie community is growing, it is strong, and keen to support, hear and share experiences.

“Having an organisation like the Norrie Disease Foundation to raise awareness of the challenges people living with Norrie disease face and to provide vital support can make all the difference to the children and families affected.
I’m happy to be able to support a worthwhile charity.”
