Webvision is proud to announce that our colleague here at the University of Utah‘s Moran Eye Center researcher Wolfgang Baehr, Ph.D., has been named by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), as the 2014 recipient of the Proctor Medal —considered to be the highest honor in the world awarded to scientists working in vision research. The award will be presented to Dr. Baehr during the ARVO 2014 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla., scheduled for May 4 — 8. Dr. Baehr was chosen as the recipient of the Proctor Medal for a lifetime of achievements including his work in discovering mechanisms underlying retinal diseases.
