Our Mission

The mission of the Rb-NET MDT project is to connect specialists from across the world with health care providers from within a country in order to enhance the quality of care of patients diagnosed with retinoblastoma in treatment centres from that specific country. This platform was created in order to enable a joint discussion between ophthalmologists, paediatric oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, geneticists and other medical experts that are clinically engaged in retinoblastoma management.
