The Lowy Medical Research Institute works in collaboration with scientific investigators at universities around the world to study Macular Telangiectasia type 2. Scientists are invited to participate in LMRI research, as extramural investigators, based on the specific expertise each brings to the project. LMRI affiliated laboratory and clinical researchers share information about MacTel with each other to advance knowledge about the disease and the mission of LMRI.
