Casey Eye Institute Research Day

Every year in the Spring, the residents, fellows, students, post-doctoral candidates and faculty engaged in ophthalmic research and present their original work in clinical, basic, and translational research on Research Day. This forum is designed to educate trainees, celebrate mentorship, and exchange ideas for discovery. The best works presented by a resident and a fellow are recognized with the Kenneth Swan, MD Research Award and Fellow Research Award. The meeting is organized by Shandiz Tehrani, M.D., Ph.D., and Phoebe Lin, M.D., Ph.D.
