Dr. Gregory S. Hageman awarded Pisart Vision Award
Dr. Gregory S. Hageman, an accomplished researcher in the field of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), received Lighthouse International's Pisart Vision Award for his significant advances in AMD research.
Hageman's recent concept that AMD is multiple distinct diseases—if confirmed in future studies—is expected to change thinking related to the development of treatments, diagnostics and the design of clinical trials for a disease that afflicts more than 30 million people worldwide. In addition, his discoveries are expected to alter research practices and methods.
The Pisart Vision Award is given annually by Lighthouse International, a nonprofit, to an individual who has made a noteworthy contribution to preventing and treating vision impairment.
