Fight For Sight

Fight For Sight

Scientific Review Committee

The Scientific Review Committee (SRC) meets every year to select our grant recipients. Most members are Fight for Sight alumni or mentors, and all have expertise in ophthalmology and/or vision research. The SRC is co-chaired by Curtis R. Brandt, PhD, of the Univ. of Wisconsin Medical School, Edward Chaum, M.D., PhD, of the Univ. of Tennessee-Hamilton Eye Institute, and David J. Calkins, PhD, of the Vanderbilt Eye Institute. Committee members volunteer many hours during the annual review process and are truly one of Fight for Sight’s greatest assets. We are grateful for their assistance.

If you would like to join us, please download and fax or email us a Fight for Sight Scientific Review Committee Application.
