Congratulations to Dr. Paul Sternberg for being the 2018 recipient of the RRF Award of Merit in Retina Research.
The Award of Merit in Retina Research was established in 1978 by RRF to recognize outstanding vision scientists whose work contributes to knowledge about the retina and retinal diseases. Funding for the Award of Merit in the amount of $50,000 is provided by Retina Research Foundation through a series of endowed gifts that are dedicated to the Award.
The recipient is chosen by the Awards Committee of the Retina Society, and the selection criteria are:
- A single outstanding achievement in retina research, or;
- A potentially significant contribution to new knowledge about the retina, its role in the visual process and/or vitreoretinal diseases or disorders.
This is a prestigious award that will be given to Dr. Sternberg at the 2018 Retina Society Annual Meeting in September. We would like to again congratulate him on this accomplishment!
