NIH P30 – Core Grant For Vision Research

The broad objective of this NEI Center Core Grant for Vision Research is to facilitate study of the structure, development and function of the visual system in health and in blinding diseases, with the aim of preventing, mitigating or curing such diseases, or the restoration of lost vision, through the application of the most sophisticated available techniques. Four resource and service Cores will help achieve the broad objective, as follows:
