Atlanta Vision Research Community is a multi-institutional network of top vision research investigators in the greater Atlanta area.
We provide support and scientific expertise for conducting vision research for individual, collaborative and pilot NEI-funded investigators and institutions.
AVRC's core facility is located in research laboratories at Emory Eye Center on the Emory University/Emory Healthcare campus. Highly recognized for clinical research trials and basic science research, Emory Eye Center's research scientists are making contributions to advances in medical science every day.
The core facility serves as a centralized vision research resource in Atlanta where faculty from multiple academic disciplines at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center can undertake joint studies in vision research.
AVRC is funded through an NEI P30 core grant to support vision basic research in ophthalmology.
The core facility also serves a role in the research projects of pre- and postdoctoral fellows supported by an NEI Training Grant, recently renewed for five years (2015-2020.)
