Funding Partnerships that Provide Opportunities to Young Investigators:
Suva Roy, PhD, from Duke University, School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina, received the 2023 Ramon Dacheux II Memorial Travel Grant. This award has allowed him to attend the annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) held in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Dacheux Travel Award is an annual grant funded by a donation from the International Retinal Research Foundation and presented through the ARVO Foundation.
Travel grants provide partial travel support to investigators who have an accepted abstract with a high score for the annual ARVO meetings and whose research findings in the abstract are considered to be of high interest to the vision and ophthalmology research community. 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.
The Dacheux Travel Award was established in 2006 to recognize not only Dr. Dacheux’s scientific achievements, but also his willingness to share his knowledge with other scientists.
