Description: Dr. Jane Sayer, an NIH research scientist in NIDDK, has established the Sayer Vision Research Lecture and Award at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), in partnership with the National Eye Institute (NEI) at NIH, to honor her family and the memory of her parents, Winthrop and Laura Sayer.

The lecture and award series will provide an opportunity for honorees to explore areas of interdisciplinary collaboration that may lead to advances in diverse medical specialties with relevance to vision research. A number of factors place vision science in a position for major advances in the near future–including the large number of identified genes relevant to eye disease and the relative ease with which pathology can be visualized and documented in the eye.

The Sayer Vision Research Fund will support two related activities: a lecture by a nationally or internationally prominent scientist—from within or outside the NIH—in a discipline with relevance to vision research, and an award to a promising new investigator in vision research within the intramural NIH community. The winner of this award will receive a grant-in-aid for his or her current research and will be asked to present the next Sayer Vision Research Lecture which will provide the awardee with broad recognition both locally and internationally.
