Irene Sisó Fuertes, Early Stage Researcher of the AGEYE Marie Curie ITN has defended her PhD at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. Her research project is entitled “Age-related changes in the optics of human eye with accommodation” and was carried out under the supervision of Dr. Hema Radhakrishnan.

This research aimed to explore further what are the changes produced during accommodation and ageing that affect vision as may potentially contribute to the development and improvement of therapeutic, external and surgical solutions capable of restoring the visual function in an adult eye. 

This scientific work has been possible thanks to the Ageye Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission (FP7-PEOPLE-ITN-2013-608049).
