NEW Published Article from a VOC-funded Researcher
One of our longtime researchers, Dr. Alejandra Young of Jules Stein Eye Institute in Los Angeles, has recently published her latest research in the PLOS science publication: A Constitutively Active Gαi3 Protein Corrects the Abnormal Retinal Pigment Epithelium Phenotype of Oa1 -/- mice. Each research paper published is a step closer to a cure for childhood blindness and other vision disorders. VOC is grateful to Dr. Young for her efforts, and we cheer her on in her next research endeavor.

Your donations make a DIFFERENCE! Every donation to The Vision of Children Foundation, no matter the size, increases the opportunity for us to fulfill our Mission. With proper funding, we are able to direct and sponsor scientific research which will lead to the prevention and treatment of these conditions. Additionally, we're able to serve as an information source for the medical community, the public, and families affected by genetic vision disorders. The Vision of Children Foundation directly grants over 80% of funds raised toward its Mission.
