Monitor genetic risks for macular degenerationThe American Wellness Assistance Foundation.

Jonathan L. Haines, Ph.D., director of the Center for Human Genetics Analysis at Vanderbilt University, can look for risk genes by comparing the DNA of African Americans with AMD compared to that of unrelated African People in america without AMD. Results could show whether AMD progresses in different ways in African Us citizens than in additional populations. In the first research of its kind, Tien Yin Wong, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Singapore Eye Analysis Institute, will examine the genetic factors behind AMD in three Asian ethnic groupings living in Singapore: Chinese, Malay, and Indian.Shinde, M.B., B.S., Ratnesh Murugan, M.B., B.S., Sonpon B.
