Ranking reveals CERA’s global research strengthsMay 15, 2017
CERA’s research strengths in ophthalmology have been revealed in the latest Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) annual global university rankings report.
According to the report, CERA, representing ophthalmology at the University of Melbourne, is 4th in the world for academic output in ophthalmology behind Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University and University College London.
The CWUR rankings measure the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions.
In 2016, CERA celebrated 20 years as an independent centre of vision research and in recent years its research program has expanded significantly. The latest CWUR results confirm CERA’s global impact and quality of research.
CERA is now poised to take a major step forward as a leading centre for integrated vision research, translation and innovation – where clinicians, patients, researchers and industry come together to develop treatments and technologies that transform patient lives.
“I sincerely thank all our researchers, students, staff and supporters who have put us in this excellent position,” Professor Jonathan Crowston, CERA’s Managing Director said.
