University-Based Research

Timely development of effective drugs to cure ocular diseases depends on understanding the science behind each disease. In addition, access to consistent methods of evaluation and effective monitoring tools are critical for assessment of the safety and efficacy of candidate drugs. Our university-based vision scientists are working every day to discover treatments, cures, and devices that will minimize the impact of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other major diseases of the eye for people all over the world who suffer from these diseases. 

When a pharmaceutical company wishes to execute a study at one of our participating universities, OSOD can easily facilitate the process using the established infrastructure of the Comparative Ophthalmic Research Laboratory.
