The eyes may be a window to the soul, but a new vision research center is a doorway to a 20/20 vision.

Wake Forest University School of Medicine is launching a new Translational Eye and Vision Research Center. Dr. Ebony Boulware, the dean of WFU School of Medicine, says this new initiative will serve as a cornerstone to make the school a leader in vision excellence.

“We believe that this center will not only impact the lives of countless individuals but also foster collaboration and innovation in the broader scientific community,” Boulware said.

The new research center is located inside Biotech Place in Innovation Quarter. Leaders say it will serve as a visionary — no pun intended — hub that will expedite new discovery in the field and foster innovation + collaboration between scientists. Keep your eyes peeled for groundbreaking research.
