The Alan Laties Career Development Program is a four-level, tiered approach to career development created to provide a sustained commitment to physicians and physician-scientists across the duration of their career, especially at junctions when they are poised to make critical career choices. Each level, which is described below, represents a new “stage” in the career progression of a physician or physician-scientist, at a point when they can choose a clinical and/or research direction.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness career development program includes funding support for medical students, post-residency clinicians and residents in veterinarian studies in retinal degenerations. To date, the program has supported 105 promising young clinician scientists.
The urgent mission of the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for people affected by retinitis pigmentosa, age-related macular degeneration, Usher syndrome and the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases. The Foundation is a beacon for those affected by these blinding diseases. Join the fight and help us accelerate our mission.
