The Applied Vision Association (AVA) is the only organisation devoted to the support and dissemination of vision research in the UK. We have over 500 members. They come from varied backgrounds but with a shared interest in perception and its practical applications. Our charter is to promote all areas of vision research from cell biology and neuroscience to clinical trials, through our regular meetings and online forum. We also aim to maintain and encourage scientific excellence through yearly funding options available to students and researchers.
In order to achieve these goals, the association conducts the following activities:
The AVA is a registered charity (No: 1049146).
