Proctor Medal

ARVO is awarding Robert E. Anderson, MD, PhD, FARVO, of the Oklahoma Health Sciences Center with the Proctor Medal for more than 40 years of research on the advancement of our understanding of the biochemistry and cell biology of photoreceptors. His recent studies show the insulin receptor is present in rod and cone outer segments, is activated by light and protects against stress-induced retinal degeneration; and that mutation in AD Stargardt's Disease is a gene that encodes a fatty acid elongase. Anderson's Proctor Award Lecture has been postponed until the 2012 ARVO Annual Meeting.

Weisenfeld Award and Lecture

ARVO is presenting the 2011 Weisenfeld Award to Paulus TVM de Jong, MD, PhD, FEBOpht, FARVO, of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience for his global leadership in retinal diseases over the last 25 years, focusing on the genetic and epidemiologic aspects of retinal diseases and glaucoma. De Jong combined his clinical excellence with proper genetics testing that led him to the identification of several new genes. He will present the Weisenfeld Award Lecture, "Blind spots: Lessons from research in aging macula disorder and glaucoma," at the Annual Meeting on Monday, May 2.
