About VVRC

The Vanderbilt Vision Research Center (VVRC) promotes research and training on a wide range of problems in vision science including:

• Visually guided behavior and cognition
• Neural processes underlying visually guided behavior
• Comparative anatomy and physiology of visual systems
• Development and plasticity of the visual systems
• Molecular mechanisms in the eye
• Diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders
• Machine vision

Funding for the center’s activities comes from the National Eye Institute. A Core Grant supports six service modules to enhance eye & vision research. A Training Grant (T32-EYO7135, P30-EY008126) provides funds for predoctoral and postdoctoral training in eye and vision science. The VVRC provides a focus of activity and interaction that facilitates collaborations among investigators.
