In Their Own Words: Why the RPB Career Development Awards Matter

On behalf of RPB Board Chairman Diane Swift, the Board of Trustees, and RPB staff, we thank our donors for supporting the RPB Career Development Awards (CDAs) for 30 game-changing years! 

We're pleased to present the following video of just a few of our 200+ CDA recipients explaining why this early-career award is essential to their own research careers and to the vision research pipeline at large.

To learn more about the CDAs, read our 30th anniversary recap article here.  

To support early-career researchers in making ground-breaking, sight-saving discoveries, donate here and write "CDA" in the comment field. We'll apply your donation directly to research being conducted by RPB-supported scientists who have received a coveted RPB CDA.
