About Our Research
As a key part of the John A. Moran Eye Center’s vision that “no person with a blinding condition should be without hope, understanding, and treatment,” we invest heavily in basic and translational research.
The Moran Eye Center supports 17 research labs and centers, where internationally-awarded faculty, including one of the world’s top retinal teams, are developing the treatments of tomorrow. The Moran Eye Center has ranked as high as seventh in the nation for National Institutes of Health funding.
Moran invests in the full spectrum of research, supporting basic research that adds to our foundation of knowledge and then providing the tools to translate discoveries into new therapies and treatments. Among the work of our renowned-research centers:
