Blindness exerts significant physical, emotional and financial constraints and hardship upon individuals. For The past 30 years Professor Keryn Williams, a transplantation immunobiologist, has been working to decrease this disease burden. Improving the outcomes of corneal transplantation, the dominant surgical treatment for corneal opacity, has been a central focus of her research. As founder and Scientific Director of the Australian Corneal Graft Registry, translational research underpins her portfolio, but is complemented and informed by basic experimental work on common eye diseases. Her research has influenced clinical practice, and the Australian Corneal Graft Registry is admired throughout the world.
