Translational research takes laboratory-based research and develops it to the stage
where it can be utilised in the treatment or assessment of human disease - essentially
developing research from laboratory bench to patient bedside.
The Translational Vision Research Laboratory is the Department of Ophthalmology's
biomedical research laboratory, combining both fundamental research facilities and
a laboratory resource for clinical studies.
Research in the Translational Vision Research Laboratory is broad, reflecting the
depth of the research team, and the clinical science requirements.
