SUNY-Opt Journal Club

Presented with support from the Schnurmacher Institute for Vision Research 2008-2009

A forum for discussion of current research for PhD students, postdocs,
and MS students in Vision Science at SUNY Optometry

Journal Club meets 3:30-4:30 pm on Wednesdays in room 1425.

Many of our papers are by SIVR Colloquium speakers.
