Forschungsinstitut für Augenheilkunde

Welcome to the Institute for Ophthalmic Research

Mission & Strategy

Seeing is an essential part of human life. As a leading centre for vision research we conduct rigorous research in order to break new ground in understanding the principles of vision and the mechanisms of blinding diseases. We are confident that this research will enable us to rationally develop effective treatments that ultimately retain or restore vision.

Within the Center for Ophthalmology at the University of Tübingen Medical Centre, we and our colleagues at the University Eye Hospital jointly strive for scientific excellence, for speed in translating the advancements into patient’s benefit, and for training and mentoring the next generation of leaders in our field.

As leaders and partners in multi-national collaborations, we work for continuous strengthening our ties to fellow international scientists in the public and private sector and to foundations, industry and patient organizations.

As an integral part of Tübingen’s biomedical and neuroscience campus, we offer a scientific environment that favors creativity for generating groundbreaking ideas, their transfer into reality and their translation into diagnostics and therapy to help those that suffer from vision loss.
