Spring 2018 edition
The ARVO Funding Guide, an online listing of over 200 opportunities for eye and vision researchers, has been redesigned to help make it easy for users to find funding sources that meet their needs. Users can filter the database to find opportunities specific to their career stage (student or independent), citizenship (U.S. or non-U.S.), credentials (MD or PhD) and opportunity type (fellowship, award, research grant). Search for keywords, such as the name of the funding organization or title, or sort the database by the application deadline to easily determine which applications are due in the near future.
Bert M. Glaser, MD, whose career spanned over 30 years, died after a brief illness in April 2017 at age 67. In his memory, Glaser’s family has established the Bert M. Glaser, MD Award for Innovative Research in Retina through the ARVO Foundation. The $10,000 research award will recognize an early-career investigator who has made a novel discovery that has profoundly changed the understanding or treatment of a retinal disease or condition.
