Vanderbilt Eye Institute receives $10M donation

The Vanderbilt Eye Institute received a $10 million grant, which it will use to fund regenerative visual neuroscience research.

Donors made the donation anonymously. Since it was founded, the Nashville, Tenn.-based VEI has grown into one of the top four eye research programs in the nation, the university said.

VEI will use the gift to support its bench-to-bedside research, bestowing grants on seven labs within the institute. Vanderbilt University Medical Center President and CEO Jeff Balser, MD, PhD, said, "The faculty of the VEI are making exciting discoveries every day, and these funds will help advance new treatments for some of the most prevalent and complex eye diseases we face."
