By means of the generosity of our sponsors, we were able to attribute 2 awards to the young scientists (PhD students and PostDoc fellows).
The 2 selected young researchers are:
Mrs Joana Neves for the best oral presentation with "MANF as an immune modulatory intervention to improve retinal regenerative therapies in aging" and
Mrs Rebekah Warwick for the best poster presentation with "Response properties of retinal ganglion cells and their underlying circuits vary with retinal location".
The 2 winners will benefit of flight tickets and registration fees for the next ARVO meeting in 2018 ! Congrats!
