Eye Center receives
$1.5M NEI grant

By Joy Bell


Henry Edelhauser, director of research at the Emory Eye Center, and his colleagues have received a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Eye Institute (NEI), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NEI Core Center Grant comprises research in structural biology, analytical biochemistry/molecular biology, and epidemiology and biostatistics.

“This important funding, which now provides 20 consecutive years of such funding from the NEI, will enable the Emory Eye Center to continue its longstanding commitment to research” said Director Thomas Aaberg. “The continued NEI support is crucial not only to the Eye Center, but also to Emory and our affiliate institutions.”

“Renewal of the basic core activities allows the Eye Center to maintain and expand the high level of productivity in vision research,” Edelhauser added. “The scope of research services proposed for each of the [three] modules reflects expanded scientific capabilities. The structural biology module adds immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy and fluorescence image analysis to the light and electron microscopy services.”
