Welcome to the Arnold and Mabel Beckman
Initiative for Macular Research
— a national effort to advance research through interdisciplinary study.
Through a generous grant from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, the Beckman Initiative for Macular Research (BIMR) brings together outstanding scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians -- all focused on a common goal: developing a better understanding of atrophic macular degeneration.
Bringing diverse perspectives to bear on the study of atrophic macular degeneration will pave the way for more accurate, quantifiable diagnostics, and the prospect of effective new treatments for the number one cause of visual impairment and blindness in older Americans. more
