Clinical Research Studies

We are always finding new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat eye disease and vision loss. You could help improve care for countless people in the future by joining a clinical trial today. Before joining a clinical study, it’s important to talk to your doctor about whether the study is right for you.

We welcome your interest in ophthalmological research activities. We encourage medical students, surgical trainees and young investigators to establish mentoring relationships with our faculty members. If you are interested in research activities or collaboration opportunities within our department, please reach out to the following people:
