Transplanting the entire eye will present far more complex issues than more common organ or other tissue transplants. Furthermore, to succeed in all the involved facets of the operation, it will require the highest expertise across many disciplines.   Spearheaded by the Fox Center for Vision Restoration, a multi-disciplinary collaboration was established between several of the preeminent departments across the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC infrastructure, along with leading scientists from other world-class academic and research institutions to work on this project.
