Funded by the German Research Foundation DFG, the Research Training Group 2610 "Innovative Retinal Interfaces for Optimized Artificial Vision", abbreviated as InnoRetVision, is dedicated to the training of students with an interest in electrical engineering, neuroengineering, biophysics, sensory or neurophysiology, and vision restoration. From this highly interdisciplinary perspective, we target the investigation of innovative approaches to current technologies in the field of vision restoration through stimulation of the visual system.
The faculty of RTG 2610 comprises researchers from eleven different scientific facilities of RWTH Aachen University, University Duisburg-Essen, and the Research Center Jülich. The project's spokesman is Prof. Dr. med. Peter Walter from RWTH Aachen's Department of Ophthalmology; the vice spokesmen are Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Wilfried Mokwa and Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Sven Ingebrandt, the former and current directors of RWTH Aachen's Institute of Materials in Electrical Engineering 1.
