Recently, Dr. Nicole Ross was interviewed as part of a student documentary competition by two Emerson students, Anthony Chasse and Mike Cantalupo. Their documentary, called “Flash: The Chaz Davis Story,” documents the journey of an athlete as his vision deteriorates and he is eventually diagnosed with Leber’s disease. In the clip, Dr. Ross describes the rapid deterioration of vision experienced with Leber’s disease.

The competition is sponsored by NESN for their new reality series, “Next Producer.” The aspiring student documentarians from Emerson College were chosen as finalists and now hope to win the competition and air their show in its entirety.

The competition is still live and needs your support. Please view the clip on the link below and vote now!

Nicole Ross Participates in ARVO/NAEVER Joint advocacy day
on capital hill

In a February 6 ARVO and NAEVR conducted a joint Advocacy Day on Capital Hill. Members of ARVO’s Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) were joined by a selected group of young investigators in requesting Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 funding increases for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Eye Institute (NEI). The young investigator delegation, which reflected both clinician scientists, and basic researchers, stressed the impact that the combination of cuts, flat funding, and lack of an inflationary increase at the NEI has had on their training and career paths.

Dr. Nicole Ross, assistant professor at the New England College of Optometry, was selected to represent young clinician scientists involved in optometric clinical care and research. Dr. Ross also played a critical role in advocating funding for low vision rehabilitation care and research.

As in past years, ARVO was among the first organizations to speak with Congressional staff about the need for NIH funding of at least $32 billion (B) and NEI funding of $730 million (M) to maintain the momentum of research. The visits were also timely in that the President’s FY2016 budget request had just issued to Congress on February 2, and staff were engaged in reviewing it and seeking feedback from research advocates-especially staff of members of the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education (LHHS) Appropriations Subcommittees in the House and Senate, with jurisdiction over NIH funding.
