An Interdisciplinary Team
UC Davis is internationally recognized for its interdisciplinary approach to research and education. The UCD Center for Vision Science epitomizes this approach. CVS faculty are drawn from 16 different academic departments, and 5 Schools and Colleges, including the School of Medicine, College of Biological Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, College of Engineering and College of Letters and Sciences. This interdisciplinary team brings an extraordinary array of expertise to bear on the study of the visual system. The team includes molecular biologists, psychologists, physiologists, neuroscientists, mathematicians, engineers, and clinical ophthalmologists from both human and veterinary medicine, among many other disciplines. Our goal is to conduct research which reveals how the visual system works, and then use this knowledge as a base for developing strategies which improve clinical care.
