Ongoing Research

The University Hospital of Ophthalmology in Bern is one of the world's leading hospitals for ophthalmological research. Besides basic research, patient-oriented research is a scientific focus of the clinic. Clinical research includes mainly clinical trials, but also epidemiological investigations and case-control studies. 

The Department of Ophthalmology offers numerous projects for master and doctoral students of the medical faculty of the University of Bern. The clinic works closely with the Artorg and the BPRC. Our goal is to build bridges between clinical activity and patient-oriented clinical research.
