Research Committee Highlights

APRIL 2023

What is your committee working on and how does it impact NANOS Members?
The Research Committee brings together members with extensive research experience to provide feedback to current members about potential research projects, and provide advice to the Board about the suitability of posting requested announcements about research studies. A large portion of our committee work is spent reviewing members' applications for the NANOS Pilot Grant program and the Young Investigator Award, with written feedback provided to help members further refine and develop and their research projects whether or not funding is granted.

What resources should the membership be aware of?
Members should be aware of the Pilot Grant program, that provides up to $25,000 funding for a pilot research grant that shows significant scientific merit relevant to neuro-ophthalmology, and strong likelihood to lead to further funding to expand the recipient's research program.  

Members within 5 years since completing their fellowship should be aware of the Thomas and Susan Carlow Young Investigator Award that provides a monetary gift as well as NANOS meeting registration, to recognize young investigators dedicating themselves to a career involving neuro-ophthalmic research.  

Stay up to date on all NANOS Awards, Grants and Recognitions here. In addition, members should be aware that Research Committee members make themselves available to provide advice and feedback about research related ideas, and can submit requests for feedback on the NANOS website here.
