The University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine was granted a $165,000 Career Development Award by Research to Prevent Blindness to support eye research conducted by Emmett T. Cunningham, Jr, MD, PhD, MPH. The support is provided over a 4-year period. The Career Development Award Fund was established in 1990 to attract young physicians and basic scientists to eye research. Dr Cunningham, Assistant Professor, Co-Director of the Uveitis Service, and Director of the new Pearl & Samuel J. Kimura Ocular Immunology Laboratory at the Francis I. Proctor Foundation, studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cytokine-induced inflammation in the eye. His ultimate goal is to develop safer and more effective therapies for patients suffering from ocular inflammatory disorders.
