Hamilton Eye Institute Faculty Presents Innovative Research at Two National Ophthalmology Conventions

Faculty from the Hamilton Eye Institute presented twenty-four posters and six papers at two national ophthalmology meetings this spring. First, the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) held its 35th annual meeting April 17-21 in San Francisco. Two weeks later, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) held its annual meeting in Fort Lauderdale. During the keynote session at ARVO, Dr. Alessandro Iannaccone received an ARVO/Alcon Early Career Clinician-Scientist Research Award. This award recognizes significant research and consists of a plaque and a $2,000 grant. We are proud to congratulate him for this accomplishment.
