Our ResearchDoheny researchers are changing how people see—and also how they think about the future of vision.
Doheny Image Reading Center
The Doheny Image Reading Center (DIRC) is a leading Doheny Eye Institute research facility. It was established in 2003 as a hub where researchers everywhere can send their high-tech photographic images of the eye for “reading” in a standardized fashion so that results from different institutes, centers, and industries are comparable across the board. This consistency speeds up the pace of discovery and the development of strategies for preventing, treating, and curing vision disorders.
Doheny Image Reading and Research Lab
The Doheny Image Reading and Research Lab’s (DIRRL) mission is to advance the field of ophthalmic imaging research and increase the value and utility of ophthalmic image interpretation in both research and clinical applications. This is done in large part by creating, validating, and deploying advanced interpretation methodologies in the conduct of clinical trials, as well as by mentoring and training the next generation of ophthalmologists.
Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research
The Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research (RIMR) brings together outstanding basic scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians to develop a better understanding of age-related atrophic macular degeneration (AMD). At annual RIMR conferences, these accomplished leaders from very different backgrounds and disciplines explore technologies, discoveries, and ideas. By sharing their diverse perspectives in interdisciplinary discussions and research collaborations, RIMR participants are improving AMD diagnostics and expanding the prospect of new treatments for the number one cause of visual impairment and blindness in older Americans.
Conflict of Interest Policy
The Doheny Eye Institute (“Doheny” or “DEI”) is committed to conducting all research activities in a manner compliant with all applicable laws and regulations. This policy sets forth standards that enable Doheny to promote objectivity in research and prevent the bias of any conflicting interest of an Investigator in designing, conducting or reporting research in the context of grants, cooperative agreements and other relevant arrangements.
