- Research

IGTP researchers led by Dr Xavier Valldeperas have received a Seed Grant (beca Llavor) from te Catalan Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR) to develop a new tamponade for retinal tears in cases of retinal detachment. This innovative project will allow the design of alternative methods to those currently available, which require more follow-up care, and in some cases a second surgery or other uncomfortable treatments for the patients.
