Neuroimaging & Visual Science Laboratory
The Neuroimaging and Visual Science Laboratory in NYU Langone’s Departments of Ophthalmology and Radiology is directed by Kevin C. Chan, PhD. The laboratory focuses on developing and applying new methods for noninvasive imaging of neurodegeneration, neurodevelopment, neuroplasticity, and neuroregeneration in people with vision-related diseases and injuries. Our mission is to improve vision preservation and restoration. We study the structural, metabolic, physiological, and functional relationships between the eyes, brain, and behavior in health and disease.
Our research is funded by the National Institutes of Health (grant R01 EY028125), BrightFocus Foundation National Glaucoma Research Program (grants G2013077, G2016030, and G20190103), the Alcon Research Institute Young Investigator Grant, the Feldstein Medical Foundation Research Grant, and the Research to Prevent Blindness International Research Collaborators Award.
