The Institute for Vision Research was founded in 1983 in response to the growing need for scientific knowledge about the visual system and methods of improving visual function. The Institute was renamed the Adolph and Ruth Schnurmacher Institute for Vision Research in 1984 to honor the Schnurmacher’s generosity that made possible the establishment of an Institutional endowment. The scientific researchers associated with the Institute are engaged in a wide variety of vision research projects. The SIVR coordinates a colloquium series, supports collaborative clinical research, small clinical research projects and innovative vision science research.
Presented with the support of the Schnurmacher Institute for Vision Research, the SUNY Optometry Journal Club is a forum for discussion of current research for PhD students, postdocs and MS students in Vision Science held on campus at SUNY Optometry.
The Journal Club meets from 12pm-1pm on Tuesdays in room 1425.
