Stand strong for science: Stand strong for vision science
Join Harvard Ophthalmology faculty, alumni, and trainees in Honolulu, Hawaii, for the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) annual conference and meeting. Basic and clinical researchers from around the globe will come together to discuss the latest advances in vision science and share strategies to inform the public, patients, and policy makers on their important sight-saving work.
This year, Dr. Reza Dana will receive the Friedenwald Award, while Dr. Janey Wiggs and her mentee Ryan Collantes will receive the Dr. David L. Epstein Award. View the full list of Harvard Ophthalmology award winners
