In the context of a FEDER project in the GIGA, the team of Prof. Agnès Noel (LBTD-GIGA-Cancer) in collaboration with Dr. Patrice Filée (CER Marloie), Dr. Pascal de Tullio (CIRM), Prof. Jean-Marie Rakic and Dr. Vincent Lambert (Ophthalmology of CHU Liège), has acquired a state-of-the art ophthalmology platform equipment Micron IV from Phoenix Research Labs, unique in Europe.

This system allows to perform complete retinal analyses, including eye funduscopy, fluorescence angiography, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and electroretinography (ERG).

It will be used to characterize therapeutic antibodies produced against a newly identified molecule involved in the progression of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which remains a major cause of blindness in people over 65 years of age.
