Vision research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is a significant, multidisciplinary enterprise, in which researchers located in laboratories across the campus investigate many aspects of the biology and pathology of the visual system.

Support for our endeavors comes primarily from the National Institutes of Health (in particular, the National Eye Institute) with important additional contributions from internal grants, private foundations and charities. Vision Research at Washington University is supported by two major interdepartmental grants, a P30 vision core grant (which provides access to shared resources and instrumentation) and a T32 vision training grant (which provides stipend support for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows engaged in Vision Research).
