Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 IoO Awards
24 June 2020
Today we celebrate research, collegiality and teaching at the Institute of Ophthalmology.
Earlier today, following a fascinating annual award lecture given by Prof Justine Smith from Flinders University, Institute Director Prof Andrew Dick and Prof Alison Hardcastle announced the winners of this year's IoO awards.
We received many nominations to recognise and celebrate academic, teaching and collegiality activities from staff and students who have made significant contributions to the Institute in the last year.
