Dr. Shue recipient of American Glaucoma Society research award
Ann Shue, MD, clinical assistant professor, received the Mentoring for Advancement of Physician-Scientists (MAPS) award from the American Glaucoma Society (AGS). This grant will fund a project titled “Home Glaucoma Testing with Virtual Reality Perimetry and Rebound Tonometry with Telemedicine” in which patients will use a head-mounted visual field device and portable intraocular pressure monitoring device at home and follow-up with tele-video visits.
This award aids recipients in the early steps of their academic careers by supporting their glaucoma research and is aimed at helping clinicians through hindrances in their research efforts. This $10,000 award provides funding for one year.
“I feel honored to receive this award,” Shue said. “This will greatly help me gather data for longer term studies in the future that I hope can allow broader and more efficient care for glaucoma patients who have limited access to care and prevent permanent loss of vision earlier for those who already have access to care.”
