Alan Stitt gets top UK award

Alan Stitt, PhD, McCauley Chair of Experimental Ophthalmology and the Scientific Director of the Centre for Vision and Vascular Science (CVVS) at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland, has been awarded the prestigious Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.
