Fight for Sight, Inc.
June 29, 2010
I would like to offer a brief description of my experience with the Fight For Sight (FFS) organization. I am a current recipient of the FFS Post-doctoral Fellowship award. I am humbled by this prestigious honor and to be associated with such distinguished alumni.
The Fight For Sight organization fulfills a unique niche, providing an unparalleled opportunity since 1946 for scientists with limited funding like myself. As a nascent scientist, this award has allowed me to investigate a novel photoreceptor-specific protein that when mutated, causes a severe and early onset form of retinitis pigmentosa. In addition, the funding from FFS has allowed me to attend and present my work at several scientific meetings. Being new to the field of vision research, I have taken full advantage of the FFS generous award. It has allowed me to form new relationships with scientists from around the globe, become acquainted with the latest methodologies, as well as further my knowledge in the field. Currently, I am preparing a manuscript for publication based on data generated through the financial support of this grant. At this critical juncture in my career, this award will be the catalyst that I am sure will help propel me in all my future endeavors. It is my hope that this organization will continue to stay viable and strong, providing support and encouragement to young scientists who are interested in pursuing academic careers.
