The division was founded in January 2014 under the direction of Dr. Anne Lynch. Dr. Lynch has created
infrastructures to conduct research in many areas including Retinopathy of Prematurity, Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Cataract. Her team includes two data managers, two recruiters at the Ophthalmology clinics, and two part-time Professional Research Assistants. In addition, she has a statistician attached to the team. Within this new Division she has established the Colorado Retinopathy of Prematurity (CO-ROP) research group for the Pediatric Ophthalmology faculty and fellows. Currently, every member of CO-ROP research group is engaged in a research project. Additionally, she has developed a registry for patients with AMD, Cataract and Uveitis. She is engaged in establishing a solid epidemiological program in the department and is working with faculty from other ophthalmic subspecialties. Importantly, Dr. Lynch is encouraging a strong group of mentees to pursue research in Ophthalmology.
