Cutting-Edge Research By Unite For Sight

There are relatively few published studies about eye care in developing countries, and Unite For Sight mentors its Global Impact Fellows to design and implement research studies that contribute to knowledge about global health delivery. Unite For Sight and its partner eye clinics compile research study questions for Global Impact Fellows to pursue. In collaboration with Unite For Sight and the partner eye clinics, the Global Impact Fellows work with a university mentor to design a research study. Global Impact Fellows are required to receive Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from their university prior to implementing their study. They are also required to complete Unite For Sight's Certificate in Global Health Research, which prepares researchers for the critical ethical and methodological issues involved with research in the developing world. Through the research process, Global Impact Fellows gain an in-depth appreciation for and understanding of global health delivery.  Most Fellows present their research findings at conferences or in peer-reviewed journals.  Read complete details about the Global Impact Lab program.
