A program for research and clinical treatment of AMD satisfies all three goals of the UA mission statement: As new technologies and techniques are developed, community physicians will be given access to the equipment and training to enable them to implement more advances.
The Advisory Group will include local and national physicians and scientists who may offer fresh perspectives on developing technology. Program Endowment Stemming the tide of the AMD epidemic requires building a world class research team.
The Southwest AMD Research Program already has recruited several experts, including specialists in retinal cell biology, ophthalmic optics, engineering and ophthalmology. Our goal is to create an endowment to sustain funding and permit long-range planning. The necessary funds will be raised from private sources, in particular, those most likely to benefit from the development of new treatments.
