Academic Honors

Visionary Honor—Dr. Selina Solomon has received a 2017 Fight for Sight Postdoctoral Award—a highly competitive award in ophthalmology, vision or related sciences. Fight for Sight is a non-profit organization that supports and inspires eye and vision research by providing initial funds to promising scientists early in their careers. Funding from the award will support Dr. Solomon’s research aimed at understanding the feedback pathways in the visual cortex, the part of the brain involved in processing visual information. Dr. Solomon will explore how the feedback pathways in the visual cortex affect the ways in which activity is coordinated among individual brain cells. Dr. Solomon is a research fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Adam Kohn; Dr. Kohn is professor in the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience, of ophthalmology & visual sciences and of systems & computational biology. He also is the Isidor Tachna Professor in Ophthalmology.
