Founded in 1977, the Macula Society is a forum for new research on retinal vascular and macular diseases. The organization recognizes outstanding achievement by its members and others through awards and lectures, and holds an annual meeting open to members, their guests, co-authors, and supporting company representatives.
To advance this mission, the society will award grants of up to $30,000 in support of clinically relevant research on macular or retinal vascular diseases. Priority is given to pilot projects with the potential to obtain additional external funding and to projects coordinating the work of the society's general membership. Projects that facilitate collaboration among society members to study a particular disease are encouraged as well.
To be eligible, applicants must be a Macular Society member in good standing at the time of application.
See the Macular Society website for complete program guidelines, a list of previous award recipients, and application instructions.
