IU School of Optometry named national vision research center
Date:6/29/2009

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A group of scientists working in Indiana University's School of Optometry and the Department of Biology will share more than $2.2 million from the National Institutes of Health to support their ongoing vision research.

The grant from the National Eye Institute, an arm of NIH, places the Indiana University Bloomington campus among an elite group of vision research centers in the nation. By providing core services to investigators who have already independently received funding from NEI, the grants will accelerate the progress of vision research through support for widely used research services.

Because the grant can ultimately assist individuals with National Eye Institute support across the entire campus, it will be a resource for all vision scientists. Currently, the core grant supports the research efforts of 10 NEI-funded IU researchers, including optometry Professor Stephen Burns, principal investigator on the grant. Burns has been continuously funded by NEI since 1982.

Joining Burns as co-investigators are:

School of Optometry Professors Joseph Bonanno, Ann Elsner, William Swanson and Larry Thibos
School of Optometry Associate Professors Rowan Candy and Donald Miller
School of Optometry Assistant Professor Pete Kollbaum
School of Optometry Research Associate Dean VanNasdale
Department of Biology Associate Professor Justin Kumar.

IU School of Optometry Interim Dean Sarita Soni said award of the grant confirms recognition by the National Eye Institute and NIH that the expansion of vision research under way at the school warranted additional support. Faculty at the school have received four additional independent research grants from NEI in just the past two years, and the number of research laboratories at the school has grown from eight to 15 in the past eight years.

The school has also added nine new faculty members in the past eight years, including Burns,
