We welcome you to the Barcelona Macula Foundation: Research for Vision
Mission

Mission

The main motivation behind the Barcelona Macula Foundation: Research for Vision is to conduct and support research into diseases of the retina and macula that cause blindness and have no effective treatment, in order to restore or prevent loss of vision. The principal focus of interest is macular and retinal degeneration, such as atrophic age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt’s disease.

At the BMF we work alongside institutions and corporations linked to the scientific elite to revert vision  pathologies which until recently were incurable and to make blindness a problem of the past.

Objectives

Primary

  • Prevent blindness or restore sight.
Our responsibility is to society, our sponsors, our colleagues and, above all, our patients.

Secondary

  • To build new therapeutic approaches to macular and retinal degeneration on cellular therapies, tissue engineering and transplantation, and biomaterials applied to these therapies.
  • To promote a better understanding of degenerative diseases of the macula and the retina in the scientific world and in society. The general public, and patients in particular, are a key part of our activities.
  • To become a key player internationally by creating a network for more efficient and focused research.

Values

  • Innovation

    We seek to incorporate innovative, promising therapeutic strategies for age-related macular degeneration and other diseases of the macula and the retina by associating with national and international academic institutions.

  • Social commitment

    Our responsibility is to society, our sponsors, our colleagues and, above all, our patients.

  • Experience

    The experience gained from both clinical practice and research keeps us in very close touch with the needs and wishes of our patients and their families. Everything we do is for them.

The Barcelona Macula Foundation is an organization composed of people who are committed to a shared project. Discover who we are.
