ERN-EYE member honoured by the Queen

Professor Graeme Black, Honorary Consultant at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT), chair of TWG6 "Genetic Diagnostics" of ERN-EYE and Professor in Genetics and Ophthalmology at The University of Manchester has been recognised by Her Majesty the Queen in her Birthday Honours list.

He has been awarded an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire).

Professor Black’s strategic leadership has been integral to developing Manchester’s infrastructure and research investment, including The Greater Manchester NHS Genomic Medicine Centre and numerous successful grants from NIHR, Welcome Trust, Department of Health and national eye charities to fund further research. Throughout his career, Professor Black has sought to improve the diagnosis, management and treatment of rare genetic disorders associated with visual disability. Most recently, he has overseen a scientific team that provides genetic testing for inherited ophthalmic disease. Having introduced genetic testing for these conditions over the last decade, this can now produce a diagnosis in around 80% of children with retinal dystrophies.
