Sep 25, 2020, 12:02 PM

This week we're delighted to meet and chat with Julian Jackson. After 5 years as Director of Development and then Senior Adviser to a leading eye research charity, Julian launched “VisionBridge” in June 2016, supported by a growing nationwide group of academic researchers, clinician scientists, clinicians and patient advocates. He continues to build on the work he started in 2014 to support innovators, promote eye health, increase the awareness and understanding of sight loss and introduce the extraordinary world of eye research to the public, eye health professionals, patients and the wider Visually Impaired community across the UK.
Julian lost his sight in 2010 to a retinal inherited disease and has a personal and professional interest in the daily battles being waged in hospitals.
