CERA is an international leader in eye research. Our world-class knowledge and expertise are used to discover better treatments, deliver faster diagnoses, and prevent eye disease.
As a not-for-profit, medical research institute, we focus on translating research into clinical practice. Our mission is to save people’s sight.
We collaborate with research organisations, universities, pharmaceutical companies and biotech enterprises from around the world. In some local and global trials, we are the lead research team. We also collaborate with global trials to provide an Australian site.
Our research team is made up of more than 50 eye doctors, study coordinators, scientists, and nurses supported by biostatisticians and data managers. We are highly experienced eye specialists who are passionate about research, and devoted to patient care.
We are currently building a network of private ophthalmology clinic sites. The Eye Trials Research Network extends our reach in Australia, supporting more patients and including more eye conditions and diseases.
