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

Elsner, Swanson and assistant professor Shirin Hassan in the past four years, and plans to hire three more investigators over the next five years to meet the needs of its growing vision science and optometry programs.

"This award fulfills one of the key strategic goals that the School of Optometry faculty set for its research program 10 years ago. The research funding and publications have increased exponentially in the last few years, and we anticipate this growth to continue," Soni said. "With this new support the National Eye Institute has recognized the strength of the program that we have built and our commitment to be one of the very best vision science research programs in the country. This new award will help insure that our vision scientists remain focused and that IU continues to attract and support the very best investigators with the greatest potential to establish vigorous program in vision research."

The grant aims to support infrastructure improvements in three areas where researchers share resources -- electronics, machine shop and scientific computing -- and will play an integral role in allowing for the seamless integration of mechanical, electronic and software components in the design and use of custom research equipment and new clinical technology.

The new funding will have broad applications to vision research projects related to microscopic and ocular fluorimetry, cell physiology and molecular biology, advanced measurement and modeling of the optics of the eye, novel imaging of the structures of the normal and pathological living human eye, studies of the normal and abnormal developing human visual system, and the development of new quantitative strategies to assess visual function in a clinical setting.

This award will also allow for a new level of coordinated activity among laboratories and groups and support sustained interaction with sophisticated supercomputing and 3D visualization resources, includ
