The Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine has been granted an Unrestricted Grant by Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) in the amount of $115,000 a year to support eye research conducted by the Department of Ophthalmology. This funding has been awarded based on a thorough review of criteria, including the department’s research activities, laboratory environment, and clinical and scientific staff, as evaluated by RPB’s renowned Scientific Advisory Panel.
The funds will be deployed at the discretion of the Department Chair, to provide maximum flexibility in developing and expanding eye research programs, and to provide opportunities for creative planning that go beyond the scope of restricted project grants.
The Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine holds one of 33 RPB Unrestricted Grants nationwide.
Since it was founded in 1960, RPB has channeled more than $377 million into eye research. As a result,
