The Alan Laties Career Development Program supports physicians’ and physician-scientists’ career development through a multi-level, tiered approach across the duration of their career. Each level 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 clinicians, and medical residents in veterinarian studies in retinal degenerations.
If you are interested in learning more about the program or applying, please review the individual awards links to the right.
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, 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.
