The Partridge Foundation (a John and Polly Guth Charitable Fund)

The Partridge Foundation is a major supporter of the research of Simon John, Ph.D., whose work has potential to provide new treatment strategies that will revolutionize care of glaucoma patients.

Through his research with mice, Dr. John discovered that a treatment involving radiation has a profound protective effect against nerve cell death in glaucoma. Dr. John’s research will provide understanding of how radiation protects from glaucoma, while developing possible new modes of treatment or prevention.
