    Honors celebrate research, future generation in retina

    By Michelle Dalton, ELS; Reviewed by Rishi Singh, MD, and Charles Wykoff, MD, PhD

    At the inaugural Ophthalmology Times Research Scholar Honoree Program, five leading retina experts weighed in on topics ranging from ellipsoid zone loss to using optical coherence tomography angiography to assess parafoveal retinal vessel density to the effects of anti-angiogenic drugs on expression patterns of epigenetic acetylation pathway genes.

    Chairman Rishi P. Singh, MD, praising the event, said, “One of the huge plusses was to see the level of caliber that residents and fellows are performing.”

    Observing that one of the presenters was still in medical school, Dr. Singh noted the obvious conclusion: it wasn’t necessarily the amount of experience that someone had, but rather commitment to the science and the experimental process.

    Dr. Singh and fellow judges Richard F. Spaide, MD (New York); David M. Brown, MD (Houston); Judy E. Kim, MD (Milwaukee); and Charles C. Wykoff, MD, PhD (Houston), pre-selected 16 presenters from among all entrants.

    Each presenter was allowed 7 minutes to discuss his or her results, including what role he or she played in the research, with a 3-minute allotment left for a question and answer by the judges.
