$10 Million Fund Created to Recruit Researchers.
—A $10 million fund inaugurated to avert a nationwide shortage of vision scientists was announced today by Lew R. Wasserman, chairman of Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB). The Research Career Development Fund will provide grants offered by RPB to more than 60 medical schools to assist them in attracting young physicians and basic scientists into eye research. Research to Prevent Blindness is devoted to mobilizing support for eye research and making available essential laboratory space, equipment, scientific personnel, and financing for the investigation of blinding diseases. The Research Career Development Fund will provide grants of $120 000 each for the use of medical schools in attracting young people with MD and PhD degrees to pursue research in departments of ophthalmology. The grants will be activated as quickly as qualified candidates are presented to RPB for approval.
