We here at Webvision are deliriously happy to report that our good friend and colleague, Bärbel Rohrer was just appointed the Stanley H. and Theodora L.

Many congratulations to her and we’ll look forward to congratulating her in person when she comes to visit us to deliver a talk in March.
ARVO 2011 has come and gone. Its taken me a couple of weeks to get through the post ARVO chaos and get caught up on my own work before posting some of the snapshots, but here they are. If you’d like to post your snapshots from ARVO here, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll arrange to add them to the list and credit you appropriately.
We are on our way to ARVO, 2011 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to participate in the largest gathering of vision scientists and clinicians in the world. It’s the annual meeting of researchers presenting and discussing all things vision and ophthalmology and a large group from the Moran Eye Center will be going.
Over the next few days, you will see some of our research abstracts appear here as the presentations are completed at ARVO. We hope that it will give some insight into the work that goes on here at the Moran Eye Center and our passion for understanding vision and what goes wrong in blinding diseases.
If you are going to be at ARVO and want to meet up, leave us a comment here or send a Tweet to @BWJones. We might even be able to work you into the Moran social on Monday the 2nd…
Look forward to seeing you there.
