1) Vision Training Grant - John Clark, Director
Multidisciplinary training in basic science and clinical aspects of vision research is conducted at both the pre- and post-doctoral levels. Faculty in 9 departments in the School of Medicine and the School of Arts and Sciences are preceptors for pre- and post-doctoral trainees in structural biology, cell and molecular biophysics, visual function and systems neurobiology using a variety of model systems in vertebrate animals and selected cell and organ culture systems. Vision training will emphasize modern technological approaches to clinical problems in the visual system in both normal and abnormal conditions. Interdisciplinary interactions that will develop new understanding of the scientific basis for important clinical problems in vision are encouraged.
