  • Soon the Flaum Eye Institute will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary. This upcoming milestone provides an opportunity to reflect on how far FEI has come and to anticipate its future direction. As part of this critical exercise, the faculty, board, and staff are working together to develop the culture and infrastructure of a “Learning Organization,” as envisioned by Peter Senge in his modern classic book, The Fifth Discipline.
  • Harvesting Intellectual Capital (Fall 2010) I am pleased to report that the Flaum Eye Institute (FEI) is enjoying increased momentum in the area of translational research. If you've been reading previous editions of Vision for the Future, you may be familiar with Krystel Huxlin, Ph.D., and her work in restoring vision to people who have suffered cortical blindness due to stroke.
  • Remarkable Gifts from Two Remarkable Families (December 2009)
    In this special edition of Vision for the Future is great news from the University of Rochester. To acknowledge the exceptional support of David and Ilene Flaum, we have named the Eye Institute in their honor. The Flaum Eye Institute (FEI) will continue to relentlessly pursue excellence in its missions of research, education, patient care, and technology transfer.
  • Building for Tomorrow: Accepting the Challenge (Fall 2009)
    I am pleased to announce that we at the University of Rochester Eye Institute are achieving many of our goals initially established at our founding just eight years ago. In this issue of Vision for the Future, we are pleased to announce new grants from the National Eye Institute (NEI) including NORDIC, establishing the University of Rochester as an important part of NEI’s clinical research enterprise.
  • Translational Research in Action (Winter 2008)
    One of the cornerstones at the University of Rochester Eye Institute (UREI) is the idea of moving basic scientific discoveries into clinical applications beneficial to patients, commonly called translational research. As we’ve grown, we’ve paid close attention to creating the infrastructure and recruiting the faculty and staff necessary in support of this goal. Right now, we are completing one of the most important phases of construction at the Eye Institute, opening additional laboratory space dedicated to understanding and treating the mechanisms of eye disease.
