  NIH:NEI Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program Award (K12) PAR-12-002

The goal of this FOA is to expand and strengthen the community of investigators engaged in clinical vision research. An increase in the number of well-trained clinical researchers is necessary to achieve a pool of scientists with contemporary, multidisciplinary expertise able to leverage recent advances in ocular genetics, therapeutics, bioengineering, and bio-behavioral research in order to enhance patient treatment and to increase scientific momentum in these fields. The FOA is expected to increase the number and diversity of clinical investigators trained in the sciences relevant to clinical vision research; to facilitate the mentoring of this group of scientists; and to form a robust research community bringing new scientific expertise to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs in vision research. The FOA is expected to facilitate and support the career development of clinical vision scientists who have made a commitment to independent research careers.
