capabilities to study the structure and function of the retina in 
healthy and diseased eyes.  This includes basic research on a number of 
animal model systems including (but not limited to) mouse and non-human 
primate systems.  Research may also involve human imaging and the 
translation of new retinal imaging methods to their use in clinical
