From clinical research that explores late-stage macular degeneration therapies to our next bold move of establishing a novel retinal research program—Gavin Herbert Eye Institute researchers are 100 percent focused on finding treatments for diseases and vision disorders. What we learn could preserve or restore sight for someone who matters to you.
We are creative in our approach to discovery, posing questions through a lens that integrates structural biology, genetics, biochemistry, pharmacology and basic functional biology. This interdisciplinary lens produces novel insights into the mysteries of vision, demonstrating that the whole is indeed greater than the sum of the parts.
Help us rise to the challenge and unlock $50,000 from a generous benefactor by being one of the first 50 gifts!
