They have five dedicated research scientists (two PhD, two MD, and one OD/PharmD). The residency training program with four residents per year is managed by a dedicated team including the Program Director, the Vice Chair of Education and the Chief Resident. The Department of Ophthalmology will be one of five departments (Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and Psychiatry) to participate in a planned Neuroscience Institute. The main Loyola research facility is a 225,000 square foot Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE) which opened in 2015 and houses the clinical Research Office (CRO) and research administration.
