  • November 9  2018 Australian National Radio has broadcasted an interview with Professor Nicky Ragge. During this interview she talks about the genetic basis of conditions where children are born with structural defects of the eye, and how progress of medical science means we can now dream of treating these children in the future. 

    June 6, 2018 Together with collaborators from France, Spain, the Netherlands, and the UK, Professor Ragge has published a new study about the BCOR gene. In here she describes how alterations in this gene can cause different but similar conditions in males and females. The paper is titled 'Expanding the Phenotype of the X-linked BCOR microphthalmia syndromes' and was published in the journal 'Human Genetics'.

    February 9, 2017 The Molecular Genetics of Human Eye Development team has teamed up with other research groups in Madrid, Spain and Toulouse, France to describe new variants in the GJA8 gene. This research has just been published in the journal 'Human Genetics' ( New GJA8 variants and phenotypes highlight its critical role in a broad spectrum of eye anomalies).

    November 7, 2016 Professor Nicola Ragge and her team have just published a new paper titled ‘Identification and functional characterisation of genetic variants in OLFM2 in children with developmental eye disorders’ in the scientific journal ‘Human Genetics’.
