Results and Impact

Fondation de l’Hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont funded breakthrough research in the ophthalmology sector in 2019. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that causes accelerated aging of the cells in the retina following diabetes. Mike Sapieha, a Director of Research at the hospital, worked on a new medication to eliminate damaged cells in the eye. The drug enables the retina to regenerate itself and helps patients recover their eyesight.

Dr. Sapieha received the 2019 Cogan Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the largest eye and vision research organization in the world. He is the first Quebec and second Canadian resident to receive this award.

While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Fondation de l'hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont's results and impact.
