Corey Smith, Sonia Manuchian and Tareq Yousef are the recipients of the 2017 Dr. R. Evatt and Rita Mathers Trainee Scholarships.

Corey Smith is the recipient of the Research Fellowship in Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The research carried out by Corey and his supervisor Dr. Balwantray Chauhan will investigate a new diagnostic technique that involves imaging perfusion of blood in a specific regions of the retina. He will determine the amount of short and long-term variability to understand if this technique is reproducible and reliable. If this work is successful, he will test the new imaging method for glaucoma patients with the aim of providing eye doctors with more information for diagnosing and treating glaucoma and other eye diseases.

Sonia Manuchian was awarded the Master of Clinical Vision Science Scholarship for her research with supervisor Dr. Johane Robitaille. Sonia will study which treatment: laser ablation or anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) therapy produces better binocularity (ability to fuse images from both eyes) in children born with an eye disease called retinopathy of prematurity.

The Master of Vision Science scholarship was awarded to Tareq Yousef, who under the supervision of Dr. William Baldridge, is investigating the possible novel connections that intrinsically photosensitive melanopsin retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) make within the retina, and the changes they impose on retinal signaling mediated by the important chemical messenger, dopamine.
