Leading the way in Norrie Disease hearing loss research

We promote and raise funds for pioneering research towards a better understanding of Norrie Disease with the ultimate aim of finding a therapy to stop or slow the progressive hearing loss.

Currently there are three exciting projects underway.

  • A partnership with GOSH and SPARKS- Investigation into gene replacement
  • Understanding the medical features of Norrie Disease
  • A Norrie Disease patient registry

More information on these projects can be found on our Research Projects page.
