The Joanne Angle Investigator Award provides funding for research investigating public health related to eye health and safety.

 
Applications will be accepted in the following priority areas in adult vision, children’s vision, or eye injury:
 
  • Burden/economic aspects of eye disease/vision loss on society
  • Best practices to integrate vision screening/follow up care to system care access
  • Vision program effectiveness/evaluation
 
All research grants need to promote the core mission of Prevent Blindness – preventing blindness and preserving sight. Basic laboratory science research will not be supported under this program. Please note preference will be given in 2017 to public health research that relates to AMD and/or glaucoma.
