Research To See

A cinematic portrait of the Institute for Ophthalmic Research in Tuebingen, Germany

The Institute for Ophthalmic Research in Tuebingen, Germany (IOR) houses several teams of scientists who work together unrevealing basic concepts of vision and develop and evaluate concepts for therapy and treatment

The Institute for Ophthalmic Research is headed by Prof. Marius Ueffing and cooperates closely with the University Eye Hospital (Prof. Karl-Ulrich Bartz- Schmidt) under the common roof of the Centre for Ophthalmology in order to perform translational research.

The Institute aims at uncovering the causes for degenerative, inflammatory and vascular diseases of the eye and the visual pathways at molecular, cellular and systemic levels.

The Institute houses several teams of scientists who work together to develop and evaluate concepts for therapy and treatment and optimise clinical and research diagnostics.

Thus, the Institute provides an efficient infrastructure which supports research and education and mediates contacts to other research institutions and to industry. The Institute enjoys not only a variety of national and international scientific activities, like intense partnerships and cooperations, but also offers courses and seminar opportunities to students and young researchers.
