Borish Center for Ophthalmic Research
About Dr. Borish
Throughout his diverse career, Dr. Irvin Borish saw the need for a facility that could offer practitioners, researchers, and industry the opportunity to contribute to the scientific literature of clinical research. Thus, he funded the Borish Center for Ophthalmic Research—"an entity to develop a premier clinical vision research center that attracts scholars and researchers from around the world; provides an infrastructure that promotes innovative and challenging clinical investigations; provides development of clinical research in vision; encourages multidisciplinary approaches; and develops strong relations with the university, governmental agencies, industry, professional organizations, practitioners, and the public." The Borish Center for Ophthalmic Research was officially dedicated on Wednesday, October 11, 1995.
