The laboratory renovation project
In conjunction with Dr. Dubra’s recruitment, the Department of Ophthalmology made a major investment to renovate the existing laboratory space on the 8th floor of the Eye Institute to house the AOIP. A dedicated waiting area for patients and their families, space for multiple adaptive optics imaging systems, numerous image processing workstations, dedicated rooms for additional clinical imaging equipment and eye exams, and a separate research and development lab comprise the AOIP facilities. In addition, there continues to be investment in the most valuable resource of the AOIP – people. The AOIP currently consists of over 40 faculty, staff, and students. In January of 2013, Dr. Dubra replaced Dr. Han and co-directed the program with Dr. Carroll until October of 2016 when he left for Stanford University.
