Wendy Liu, MD, PhD, assistant professor of ophthalmology, was granted a $350,000 Career Development Award from Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) to support eye research. The support is provided over a four-year period. 

“I am honored to receive this award and grateful that it will further my translational research on the role of mechanosensation in the eye using animal models and electrophysiology,” Liu said.

The RPB Career Development Award was established in 1990 to attract early-career physicians and basic scientists to eye research. To date, the program has given awards to 234 vision research scientists in departments of ophthalmology at universities across the country.
