Remembering a renaissance man
Announcing the Bert M. Glaser, MD Award for Innovative Research in Retina
As an innovator, clinician, teacher, entrepreneur and researcher, ARVO member Bert M. Glaser, MD, was a renaissance man. After starting a career in academia as a clinician-scientist specializing in retina, he transitioned to private practice. But he never lost the research and teaching bug.
Glaser, 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.
