Monday night, at Sam’s Scramble for Sight in Grand Rapids Michigan, the Advisory Board of the Institute for Vision Research announced the creation of an annual “Heart of Our Vision Award” to recognize someone in our organization who has made an extraordinary contribution to the cure of heritable blindness. This year, Dr. Budd Tucker was chosen as the first recipient of the award and was presented with a Fender Telecaster guitar autographed by Bruce Springsteen to commemorate the event.
