This $45,000 fellowship award will fund Dr. Bispo's project to develop a rapid and unbiased metagenomic sequencing approach to detect uveitis pathogens. This novel test could substantially improve diagnostic yields and help to illuminate new causes of infectious uveitis in cases that remain undiagnosed after extensive laboratory workup, with great potential for significantly changing the management of patients with this debilitating disease.
