The Stein Eye Institute's Clinical Research Center provides core support to faculty members who are conducting patient-based research studies. This support involves vital, behind-the-scenes activities that facilitate the clinical research process.
Laboratory-based research, also called basic science research, forms the foundation for the clinical research, education and patient care that are the visible hallmarks of the Stein Eye Institute. The Institute has over 20 specially equipped laboratories to support vision science investigations. Organized around the interests of the research faculty, these laboratories offer unique opportunities for students, physicians and fellows to become involved in internationally and nationally renowned scientific study.
