Rb-NET MDT Project

Welcome to the Retinoblastoma Network (Rb-NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) project!

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.

News

The Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust is offering funding towards a Fellowship for an ocular oncologist who wishes to pursue their studies at a centre of excellence in India, UK, USA or elsewhere. The amount available is 25,000 USD. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2022. More information is available at www.vcecct.org We encourage any ophthalmologist in Rb-NET who is interested in applying to contact Marcia Zondervan in the first instance so we can discuss it and try to help you with the application, as we believe it could be very competitive. It would be wonderful if someone from Rb-NET was successful, as we know what an enormous impact such specialist training would have in your home country.
