The goal of this FOA is to expand and strengthen the community of investigators engaged in clinical vision research. An increase in the number of well-trained clinical researchers is necessary to achieve a pool of scientists with contemporary, multidisciplinary expertise able to leverage recent advances in ocular genetics, therapeutics, bioengineering, and bio-behavioral research in order to. With proper training and guidance, people with vision loss can live active lives and learn to travel within and beyond their communities. This program describes common self-travel methods and also provides detailed instruction in the “guide technique,” an effective way to assist individuals with vision loss. Research Description My lab is interested in epithelial homeostasis, secretion and innate defense. We focus on the human prosecretory mitogen 'lacritin' that we discovered and named out of an unbiased screen for factors regulating ocular tearing (Sanghi et al, J Mol Biol '01). The centre will bridge the outstanding laboratory research at DUKE-NUS with the world-class clinical and genetics research at SERI/SNEC. The centre will focus on better understanding the underlying causes of blinding diseases and from this develop new treatment approaches for maintaining and restoring vision.

Dr. Ian P. Howard () was the founder of the Centre for Vision Research and is renowned for his research into human visual perception. To honour their late father, Ian’s children set up the Ian P. Howard Family Foundation Graduate Scholarship and the Centre for Vision Reaearch created the Ian P. Howard Memorial Lecture Series. CURRICULUM VITAE August Colenbrander, M.D. SUMMARY SHEET Dr. Colenbrander was born in Holland where he received his medical and ophthalmological training and served on the faculty of Leiden University Medical School until In he was invited to the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa as a visiting professor. Host/partner institute and lab are expected to have a record of outstanding scholarship in vision science. Scholars and Trainees are connected to OR are a VISTA Core/associate Member. Applications will be approved based on: Fit of the proposed research with the VISTA mandate. Sponsorship by a VISTA partner. Duration of visit. The research was funded by National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Space Agency. Allison is a core member of the Vision: Science to Application (VISTA) program, associate director of the Centre for Vision Research (CVR) and a York Research Chair in Stereoscopic Vision and Depth Perception.

Tavakoli Dastjerdi, M.D., FICO is an ophthalmologist with a special interest in neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, and adult strabismus and lids and orbital surgery. He underwent four years of clinical and research fellowship training in neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, and. The National Eye Institute's mission is to conduct and support research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight, and the special health problems and requirements of the blind.
