Dear Vision Science Researchers:

The Visiting Scholars Program is an seminar series dedicated to communicating scientific results and ideas about vision research between a renowned scholar from another institution and our VSRC affiliates.  The program is enriched by devoting a full day of collegial visits to labs, a cornerstone seminar, and a student-centered luncheon with the visiting scholar.  Every year, suggestions for speakers are solicited from the UAB vision community, and a diverse program is assembled for the academic year.  We represent the full range of vision research, from basic mechanisms of photoreceptor function through to translational efforts to restore vision loss in clinical populations.  The Visiting Scholars Program is funded in part by the University-Wide Interdisciplinary Research Center mechanism and the Dean of the School of Optometry.
