Research Cores

Bascom Palmer and the Department of Ophthalmology have several core modules to support all aspects of cutting-edge ophthalmic research. Some modules supported in whole or in part by National Eye Institute Center Grant P30 EY014801 are listed below.

Access to modules is provided to all eye and vision research scientists. Scheduling is managed through the University’s Sharepoint website. (Contact Charles Yaros, Sr. Manager of Research Support for Access). When demands exceed availability, the priority of access is: 1) Investigators with NEI-R01 funding; 2) investigators working on revised NEI-R01 grant applications; 3) investigators collecting data for new NEI grant submissions. 4) Additionally, non-NEI-funded vision investigators may use the modules, particularly if such usage could potentially lead to or facilitate a new collaboration with an NEI funded investigator or a new NEI proposal. The same priority order also applies to individuals who require assistance or training from module directors and managers. Module users should quote Grant P30 EY014801 in their publications.

Additional core modules, supported independently, or by the Department of Ophthalmology, are:

McKnight Vision Research Center Investigators

The McKnight Vision Research Center Investigators draws together all eye and vision researchers at the University of Miami and other local institutions to share in research activities, collaborative expertise, core resources, and educational programs. The McKnight Vision Research Center Investigators are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through a core center grant (P30 EY14801) from the National Eye Institute (NEI).
