Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network (DRCRnet) public web site
General Information about the DRCR Network

The DRCR Network (DRCR.net) is a collaborative network dedicated to facilitating multicenter clinical research of diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), hereditary retinal degenerations and other retinal diseases. The DRCR.net supports the identification, design, and implementation of multicenter clinical research initiatives focused on retinal disorders. Principal emphasis is placed on clinical trials, but epidemiologic outcomes and other research may be supported as well.


The DRCR.net was formed in September 2002 and currently includes over 115 participating sites (offices) with over 400 physicians throughout the United States.


The DRCR.net is funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI). The NEI is a part of the National Institutes of Health, which is the branch of government that funds medical research.


Three core centers within the DRCR.net support overall operation and leadership of the network. The core centers are: the office of the Network Chairs (Jennifer K. Sun, M.D., M.P.H., Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts and Daniel F. Martin, M.D., Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio), the Coordinating Center (Director, Adam R. Glassman, M.S.; Executive Director, Roy W. Beck, M.D., Ph.D., Jaeb Center for Health Research, Tampa, FL), and the National Eye Institute (Project Officer, Sangeeta Bhargava, Ph.D.).
