NEI has launched a webinar series to help promote and disseminate cutting-edge research that is relevant to the vision community. Authors of recently published articles will present their work to the research community through this monthly webinar series.
NEI is pushing the boundaries of vision science. By facilitating cross-disciplinary research, the AGI is advancing regenerative medicine to tackle the most devastating and difficult-to-treat eye diseases.
3-D ROC is spurring development of robust systems for modeling retinal diseases and testing new regenerative therapies.
NEI is taking the first important steps to correlate phenotypes, genotypes, and imaging information in the newly created AMD Integrative Biology Initiative.
This trans-NIH effort was established by the 21st Century Cures Act to accelerate progress in the field by supporting clinical research on adult stem cells, while promoting scientific rigor and protecting patient safety.
