Margaret M. Dyson Vision Research Institute

The Department of Ophthalmology's basic scientific investigation is housed within the Margaret M. Dyson Vision Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, New York. This is a 12,000 sq ft research laboratory, and houses comprehensive laboratory facilities for the study of cell biologic issues related to ocular disease.

These investigators are complemented by a large team of postdoctoral fellows, research fellows, medical students, and visiting scientists. The Dyson Institute is home to a major tri-institutional (Weill Cornell Medical College, Rockfeller Institute, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute) training grant in vision science and the environment is vibrant and stimulating. Additional expansion programs in retinal diseases, stem cell research, and genetic therapies are in progress.
