The Department is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, in collaborative efforts with Thomas Jefferson University, Temple University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Miami and University of Alabama at Birmingham. The Wills Eye Hospital Department of Research will continue to work on projects that improve education, research, clinical care, and public service for vision care issues.
