Amalia Enríquez-de-Salamanca, PhD, has been awarded an ARVO Publications Grant for her paper, Prehematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Tear Cytokines as Potential Susceptibility Biomarkers for Ocular Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease, which was published in the September issue of IOVS.
Enríquez-de-Salamanca is principle investigator at Institute of Applied Ophthalmobiology, University of Valladolid, Spain. She earned a PhD in Biochemistry from the Complutense University in Madrid, Spain.
In the paper, the authors determine that cytokine tear levels before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) may help anticipate the occurrence of ocular chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD). Read the full paper.
