The Alston Callahan, M.D. Postdoctoral Scholar Award in Basic Science
The International Retinal Research Foundation recognizes the need to strengthen and expand the international pool of vision scientists who possess the scientific, technical, and professional skills required to perform independent research. Addressing this need, Three IRRF Scholar Awards have been designated in honor of individuals who played a critical role in the development of the International Retinal Research Foundation and are meant to serve as a memorial to their efforts. One of the awards given is The Alston Callahan, MD Scholar Award.
Deadline for submitting nominations for The Scholar Awards is March 15, and will be reviewed by the IRRF Director of Education, with final approval to come from the Board of Directors. All notifications will be provided in writing by June 1, with a July 1 funding date.
