CERA top dog among eye institutes world-wide

image-tools (12)A recent analysis of the publication output of the world’s eye research institutes has CERA listed among the top five.

The analysis uses a combined measurement incorporating the number and quality of papers published in the last five years.

CERA Managing Director Professor Jonathan Crowston said CERA’s excellent publication output is an outstanding achievement made more exceptional considering that just 15 years ago, the Centre wasn’t in existence.

“CERA is in excellent company among the world’s most prestigious and successful ophthalmic research institutes including Harvard University and Moorfields Eye Hospital in London,” Professor Crowston said.

“The number of papers published is just one measure of success. This particular measurement also demonstrates the extraordinary impact that CERA’s research has on the field of ophthalmology,” he said.

“I congratulate our researchers for this achievement made possible through their scientific advances and contribution to knowledge and education through publications and presentations.”

Using the publication output measure, CERA ranked 4th behind Moorfields Eye Hospital, Harvard University and Wilmer Eye Institute.

Other Australian eye research institutes, including the Universities of Sydney, NSW and Western Australia, ranked in the top 50.
