Alcon Research Institute funds a “virtual institute” that seeks outstanding contributors to ophthalmic research throughout the world and honors them both in a symposium that elite members of the eye research community attend, as well as monetarily through research grants. The Young Investigator Award is intended to encourage, and promote the early independent career development of clinicians and scientists in vision research and ophthalmology.
