NEI's Audacious Goal
About the AG Initiative

The NEI selected this Audacious Goal to energize the vision research community with the knowledge that NEI is committed to making this a reality. We selected this goal after more than a year of gathering ideas, planning and discussing with many experts from all over the world. Learn more about how the NEI is paying special attention to the AG and the two high priority research areas.
