Research Funding Awards

The Vickie and Jack Farber Vision Research Center at Wills Eye Hospital is pleased to announce that Dr. Ajay E. Kuriyan, Retina Specialist, Wills Eye Retina Service, Mid Atlantic Retina, and Assistant Professor of Opthalmology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, was recently awarded two highly competitive research grants: Alcon Research Institute’s Young Investigator award and The Mills and Margaret Cox Research Award from the Macula Society. These awards will support research investigating the role of monocarboxylate transporter 4 (MCT4) and lactate in proliferative vitreoretinopathy.

Alcon Research Institute’s Young Investigator Award
The primary goal of the Alcon Research Institute's Young Investigator Grant is to encourage and promote the early career development of clinicians and scientists in vision research and ophthalmology. Each year, the ARI funds a "virtual institute" that seeks outstanding contributors to ophthalmic research worldwide. In addition to receiving research grant funding, each awardee is honored at a symposium that elite members of the eye research community attend.

Mills and Margaret Cox Research Award
The Mills and Margaret Cox Research Award recipient is chosen by the Macula Society's Research and Education Committee for research on retinal vascular and macular diseases. This award is to support research endeavors of Macula Society members and applications must have the potential of increasing the understanding of macular or retinal diseases.
