Fight for Sight, Inc.
June 29, 2010
I served on FFB's grant review panel for a few years, helping to review grant applications primarily from first-time, young investigators trying to enter the vision research field. I was truly impressed by the high quality of the applicants and their proposals. More importantly, however, the impact that this funding had on the career development of these young investigaotrs was critical to their future in the field. FFB is a first-rate not-for-profit organization, and a credit to the profession.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Within a year or two of several grantees getting their first awards, I would see their presentations at ARVO meetings and elsewhere and know that the funding they received had been put to very good use. It was very gratifying to see this outcome.
