Finding a Cure for BlindnessBotond Roska, leader of Central Visual Circuits and Human Retinal Circuit Groups, found a cure for a condition that causes blindness in 1 in 4,000 children. Roska works at the University of Basel in Switzerland. In recognition of his efforts, Roska received the Körber Prize for European Science.
Roska may have found a way to repair the cell, allowing the eye to see and differentiate light. The Körber Prize will help Roska further his essential research. The prize includes €1,000,000 to be used for research and development in life and physical sciences.
