BOSTON (May 20, 2014) Two prominent faculty members of the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology and Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Schepens Eye Research Institute were selected to receive prestigious 2015 achievement awards from The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO). These honors were announced during the ARVO 2014 Annual Meeting held May 4 through 8 in Orlando, Florida.

Patricia D'Amore, Ph.D., M.B.A., F.A.R.V.O., is the recipient of the 2015 Proctor Medal, honoring her outstanding research contributions to ophthalmology.

"ARVO is honored to have Dr. D'Amore, as the recipient of the 2015 Proctor Medal. Her outstanding research on vascular growth and development throughout her career will continue the tradition of superb and highly deserving Proctor Medal recipients. We will all look forward to her presentation at the ARVO 2015 annual meeting," said William Mieler, M.D., F.A.R.V.O., President of ARVO.
