Recipient of the 2017
ARVO/VSS Research Fellowship
VSS is pleased to announce the recipient of this year's ARVO/VSS Research
University of Texas at Austin
Kathryn Bonnen will apply her training in the perception of 3-dimensional
motion and sensorimotor control to investigate how individuals with
amblyopia use vision to guide action in everyday tasks.
The purpose of the ARVO/VSS Research Fellowship is to encourage and foster
new collaborations between clinical and basic vision researchers to better
train young scientists in the area of translational research. These
fellowships will provide research funds to support students who wish to
acquire training in a cross-disciplinary lab to promote their ability to
perform translational research and compete for research funding as their
career matures. In concept, trainees working in a clinical environment but
desiring a career in translational research would benefit from a mentored
program in a more basic science lab and a trainee in a basic research
environment would benefit from a mentored program in a lab conducting
translational research in a clinical environment.
Each year one or two $5,000 ARVO/VSS Research Fellowships will be offered.
The goal is to fund one fellowship for an ARVO member-in-training who would
benefit from training with a VSS member and one for a VSS member-in-training
who would benefit from training with an ARVO member.
