Individualised risk based Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy

ISDR is a clinical trial to study Individualised risk-based Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy (ISDR) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). My role, responsibilities and involvement on this study is documented in the various sections of this page.


The section will details my research involvement on this study.
