CORE Grant for Vision Research

The Department of Ophthalmology is proud to be the center of a Core Grant for Vision Research from the National Eye Institute (NEI) that has been continuously funded for more than 40 years. The current grant supports four shared-use resource Modules under the direction of principal investigator, Dr. Joseph Carroll, Richard O. Schultz, MD / Ruth Works Professor in Ophthalmology, Co-Director, AOIP.

The research supported by the grant contributes to new knowledge about the development and function of tissues of the eye and for the prevention and treatment of many eye disorders. This grant supports four shared-use resource modules to assist scientists located at the Eye Institute as well as the vision scientists in the departments of anesthesiology, biochemistry, biophysics, pediatrics, radiology, and cell biology, neurobiology & anatomy for their studies of the eye and visual system.
