We are pleased to report that VISICORT has been granted a 6-month no-cost extension from the European Commission to continue the project’s ongoing major research activities following delays caused by the COVID19 pandemic. This extension will provide the consortium with additional time for data collection and analysis from our three multi-centre clinical studies which are analysing bio-samples and clinical outcomes from more than 700 human subjects and for the manufacture of allogeneic mesenchymal stromal cells for the initiation of the VISICORT clinical trial to be conducted at Charité University Hospital and Charité Research Organisation in Berlin. The new end-date for VISICORT FP7-funded research is March 31st 2021. The consortium is also pursuing future funding opportunities to build new innovative and collaborative projects in the areas of corneal transplantation and corneal diseases.
