Finding cures for children's genetic diseases


Prof Jamieson is the Sydney Kings’ Unsung Hero


It’s not every day that a medical professor is honoured at a basketball game, but that was exactly how the New Year started for Children’s Medical Research Institute’s Head of Eye Genetics, Robyn Jamieson.

On Saturday 6th January Professor Jamieson was invited to a Sydney Kings basketball game at Qudos Bank Arena at Sydney Olympic Park.

The Sydney Kings have a program called Unsung Hero, where a member of an organisation is acknowledged for their outstanding contribution to the community.

Robyn was recognised for her “amazing work in developing cures for blindness’’ which she was told had “touched the Kings’’ their players, team and members and they wanted to spread awareness about her research.

A short video about her research was shown and she was then given the award in front of the massive crowd at the arena.
