Research

The Department of Ophthalmology has a long history of participation in significant basic science and clinical research. The Department has a formal affiliation with the Eye Research Institute, (ERI) at Oakland University, which holds a core grant from the National Eye Institute, (NEI), National Institutes of health, (NIH).

Residents are required to participate in one research project during their three years of training

The Department has participated in important National Collaborative Clinical Trials in virtually every area of ophthalmology, including the

  • collaborative ocular melanoma study
  • age related eye disease study
  • diabetic retinopathy study
  • early treatment diabetic retinopathy study
  • advanced glaucoma intervention study
  • optic nerve sheath decompression trial
  • idiopathic intracranial hypertension treatment trial

Opportunities for collaboration in basic and clinical science projects are plentiful, as are opportunities for publication in peer reviewed literature, and presentation at regional and national scientific meetings. Beaumont not only encourages residents to Participate in research, but is dedicated to providing the support necessary to allow residents to engage in research that is important to the advancement of their careers.
