ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) - A $1.5 million grant is supporting research into cataracts by a professor at Oakland University in suburban Detroit.

The school announced this week that Dr. Frank Giblin’s work is getting a four-year grant. National Institutes of Health funding has supported his research for more than three decades. Giblin is a professor of biomedical sciences and director of the Eye Research Institute.

His research on “Proteins of Normal and Cataractous Lenses” has received more than $10 million since the grant funding started in 1977.

With the latest funding, he plans to further explore the cause of age-related cataracts.

About 20,000 students attend Oakland University. Its campus spans more than 1,400 acres in the Oakland County cities of Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills.
