To ensure the money is allocated to the best research projects, the Foundation has created a Science Committee that analyses and retains projects submitted under tender. This peer committee previously worked in collaboration with the FRSQ research network. The Science Committee analyses and selects the most innovative and promising projects and makes its recommendations to the board of directors. Here are the main criteria for project selection:

  • originality
  • quality of methods proposed by the researchers
  • evaluation of success potential
  • quality of supervision of the human and material resources in the research environment
  • it must be a booming project

Awards for 2015-2016:

Following the invitation to tender sent out in last September, the Eye Disease Foundation awarded two grants (total of 40,000$).

The first one (30,000$) is intended to Dre Élodie Boisselier, PhD and Dr Vincent Pernet, PhD (St-Sacrement Hospital, Quebec City) and will fund a common project on glaucoma.

The second one (10,000 $) is intended to Dr Bryan Arthurs (McGill University, Ophthalmology department, Montreal) to investigate the biocompatibility of an eyelid implant.

Congratulations !
