The Medical College of Wisconsin vision science team is led by 12 faculty researchers, including five who work right alongside faculty physicians at the Eye Institute. Their diverse research interests mean MCW is home to a wide array of research resources.
Over the past 40 years, the Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute has developed its Vision Science Research into a solid platform for innovation, collaboration and discovery. Vision research continues to grow not only within the Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, but also throughout the vision science community we have shaped on campus, allowing the Medical College of Wisconsin to be a leader in vision research.
