The National Eye Institute (NEI) supports multidisciplinary research focusing on the development of novel biological therapies for visual diseases and disorders. The translation of research findings into clinical application often requires a comprehensive and integrated team approach. NEI is making resources available to scientists from several disciplines to form research teams to tackle therapeutic problems that may be beyond the capabilities of any one research group.
