In December 2022, David (A&S ‘74) and Deborah Winston made a generous gift to establish the Winston Fellow Award in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.

This unique award will support graduate students who are receiving specific training in vision science through the Interdisciplinary Training in Vision Science Pathway. The overall goal of the program is to attract a group of gifted, well-trained biomedical scientists to careers in vision research to continue unlocking the mysteries of eye disease.
