VERU was recognised for its work to improve eye and healthcare for diabetic patients of South Asian origin. While VERU’s Professor Rupert Bourne has been leading the most comprehensive study ever into the prevalence of global blindness. The findings have directly impacted on healthcare policymakers and professionals, charities and economic analysts around the world.

Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor, said “Anglia Ruskin University excels at delivering impactful research which reaches beyond the academic world to make a real difference to all of our lives.”Going Forward VERU will be involved in ‘near market’ research which will enable us to translate our laboratory and clinical research into improving the eye care of patients. We are keen to increase our collaborations with our clinical colleagues and industry.
