Three Tigem researchers have been granted the ARVO2023 Travel Grant Awards!
Every year, the National Eye Institute, organizations and corporations, as well as contributions to the ARVO Foundation for Eye and Vision Research fund several Travel Grant Award to attend to the ARVO Annual Meeting.The ARVO Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity for trainees and early career investigators to discuss their research with leaders in their fields and receive encouragement to continue their work. Travel grants are provided to those whose research findings in the abstract are considered to be of high interest to the vision and ophthalmology research community.
This year, three TIGEM researchers have been awarded:
- Simona Brillante: PostDoctoral Fellow at Indrieri's Lab. Granted by IRCCS Fondazione G.B.Bialetti - Maria Grazia Volpe: PhD Student at Indrieri's Lab. Granted by the Knights Templar Eye Foundation - Martina Di Guida: PhD Student at Banfi's Lab. Granted by the Knights Templar Eye Foundation
The ARVO Annual Meeting is the premiere gathering for eye and vision scientists at all career stages, students, and those in affiliated fields to share the latest research findings and collaborate on innovative solutions. For 2023, the Meeting will be hosted April 23 - 27 in NewOrleans, La.
The theme of the 2023 Annual Meeting - The Beauty of Diversity in Science and Nature - speaks to the mechanistic diversity in ocular disease, plus how we, as vision scientists, are a diverse group with multiple backgrounds and perspectives. Diversity is a hallmark of nature and has provided us with a beautiful natural world. Likewise, there is mechanistic diversity in ocular disease, and we, as vision scientists, are a diverse group with multiple backgrounds and perspectives. Let us embrace and celebrate this diversity at the 2023 ARVO Annual Meeting as we share our research and pursue our common goals of improving people's vision and lives.
