Glaucoma Research

Glaucoma Research Society of Canada grants $180,000 for 9 Research Projects in 2020:

FUNDING NEW IDEAS

The Glaucoma Research Society of Canada is the only Canadian non-profit organization solely dedicated to funding glaucoma research. Since 1989, it has raised more than five million dollars in support of 247 research projects. The Society funds 10 to 15% of all independent glaucoma research in Canada.

Sound governance, a volunteer board, and low administration costs ensure that more than 90% of funds raised by the Society go directly to Canadian researchers.
