ARVO Foundation Invites Applications for Genentech Age-Related Macular Degeneration Fellowships

The ARVO Foundation for Eye Research, the philanthropic arm of the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, was established in 2001 to ensure stable support for innovative and novel vision research, particularly work with translational impact that fosters collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists.

The foundation is inviting applications for two Genentech Age-Related Macular Degeneration Research Fellowships in support of research related to age-related macular degeneration. A single grant of $40,000 grant will be awarded to a basic researcher working to advance the understanding of AMD, while a second grant of $40,000 will be awarded to an AMD researcher focused on therapeutics.

To be eligible, applicants must be a newly established investigator age 45 or younger at the time of application. While ARVO membership is not necessary, applicants must currently be working in a nonprofit or academic research center.
