2013 Annual Meeting contest

"The star of ARVO 2013 is you. You're the ones who are going to show us how research inspires you, motivates you, changes the lives of people around you, how it leads to jobs, things that you do, advances, and how that in turn influences others to do research to reach new discoveries." – ARVO President Sir Peng T. Khaw, MD, PhD, FARVO

How has research changed your life or the lives of your patients?
