Government Grant





The purpose of this FOA is the rapid and efficient translation of innovative laboratory research findings into therapies, devices or other resources for use by clinicians to treat visual system diseases or disorders. Multidisciplinary teams of scientists and clinicians will focus on generating preclinical data that will lead to the development of biological interventions, such as gene therapy, cell-based therapy, pharmacological approaches, and/or medical devices. The ultimate goal of this program is to make technological, biological and pharmacological resources available to clinicians and their patients.
