Women in Eye and Vision Research (WEAVR)

Women in Eye and Vision Research (WEAVR) is an initiative of the ARVO Foundation to further develop and strengthen women who are pursuing careers in the visual sciences. WEAVR supports and promotes networking, career development, and access to research opportunities for female vision scientists. WEAVR raises philanthropic dollars to support the ARVO Foundation through its annual WEAVR Luncheon.

The WEAVR Leadership Committee provides strategic direction for WEAVR’s fundraising activities and leads WEAVR’s initiatives for networking and career development for women.

Upcoming WEAVR initiatives include:
