​The Department of Ophthalmology is pleased to host a Vision Research Seminar Series!  This series will cover research in the visual sciences and will feature speakers from multiple institutions.  Everyone is welcome – our goal is to assemble the diverse vision research community in order to learn from each other.  We will meet the 4th Friday of each month during the academic year from 12 PM – 1 PM in the Ophthalmology Conference Room (RC-1 North, room 5109).

For additional information or if you would like to present your research at our seminar series, please contact Dr. Brzezinski or Spencer LaFasto.
