Ludwig von Sallmann Clinician-Scientist Award
The ARVO Foundation for Eye Research has established a fund in recognition of Ludwig von Sallmann, MD, a distinguished international ophthalmologist and ophthalmic investigator whose contributions greatly increased the basic and clinical understanding of vision and ophthalmology. The first Ludwig von Sallmann Clinician-Scientist Award was presented in 2011.
Dr. von Sallmann served as chief of the Intramural Program of the National Eye Institute and was an ARVO Proctor Medal recipient in 1951. He also served on the staffs of Vienna, Beijing and Columbia Universities.
Award recipients will present a lecture at a scientific session, symposium or minisymposium at the ARVO Annual Meeting. Clinician-scientists from all countries who are under 40 years of age at the time of selection are eligible for the award. The von Sallmann Clinician-Scientist Award will be given annually and is open to both ARVO members and nonmembers.
