Macula Society Research Grant Program

The purpose of the MSRG program is to provide funding for clinically relevant research into macular or retinal vascular diseases. Pilot projects with the potential to obtain additional external funding and projects coordinating the efforts of the general membership are preferred. Projects that already receive or are expected to receive $50,000 or more from other sources are not eligible for the Macula Society Research Grant Program. Members who received a research grant in the past three years are not eligible.

Members may apply to only one of the two grants below, not both.

The Mills and Margaret Cox Macula Society Research Project sponsored by the Retina Research Foundation

We have one grant this year available to support research endeavors of the members of the Macula Society. Retina Research Foundation generously supports one grant of $30k. The funding of a proposal will be determined by the Research Committee depending on several criteria based upon(i) the project design (ii)the project feasibility (iii) the project significance. The ranking will then be presented to the Executive Committee anddistribution of the final funding determined.
