Oxford Updates event

16 April 2018

We’re pleased to announce the details for the next Oxford Updates day event, which incorporates the Jessie Mole Lecture. This year’s event will be held on Monday the 16th of April at The TS Eliot Theatre, Merton College, Oxford and runs from 09:00am to 18.15pm.

Jessie Mole was a very important figure in the early days of the organisation. In April 1975 she wrote the Deed of Trust for the charity, then the British Retinitis Pigmentosa Society, which was founded by her niece Lynda Cantor. She worked tirelessly for the charity, serving as Treasurer, Chairman of the Management Committee and then Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Jessie died on 24 March 2000 and The Jessie Mole Lecture was inaugurated on 10 December 2001, in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the charity.

This year’s lecture, which is the final session of the day, is entitled ‘Retinal diseases and prospects for therapy in the genome era’ and will be delivered by Prof Chris Inglehearn.

Places are limited and must be registered in advance, so please email if you would like to attend.
