Modern ophthalmology requires highly precise, safe and gentle technologies. Thanks to the close collaboration with the new IOB research institute, our clinicians are working hand in hand with basic researchers to better understand eye diseases and develop new therapies to combat vision loss.

Main research areas

The Eye Clinic of the University Hospital Basel is involved in research as well as academic training.

In research, the spectrum ranges from basic research to clinical research. For many years, there has been little innovation in ophthalmology, partly due to a lack of understanding of basic disease mechanisms and partly due to a lack of connection between basic research. The new Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel (IOB) in Basel aims to fill this gap - thanks to close collaboration with the Eye Clinic.
