Through the cutting-edge, collaborative efforts of our members, we are advancing our mission to gain critical knowledge about the science and art of vision, and apply it to the prevention and treatment of blinding diseases. I invite you to learn more about our work through this website, which includes links to the work of our 150+ members.

Vision loss often has devastating consequences for affected individuals and their families. Millions of Americans (including approximately 100,000 Wisconsin residents) suffer from age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and childhood-onset disorders, among many other conditions.

McPherson Dedication: The McPherson Eye Research Institute (MERI) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was founded by Drs. Daniel M. Albert and Alice McPherson in 2005 to bring under one umbrella the extraordinary inclusion diversity and strength of vision research at UW-Madison. Named in honor of pioneering retinal surgeon and University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health graduate Dr. Alice McPherson, the McPherson ERI has quickly become one of the world’s foremost multi-disciplinary vision research centers, with members in 35 UW-Madison departments and affiliated non-UW institutions. Through basic and clinical science research of the eye and visual system, our researchers have made significant advances in vision science and related fields.
