HEI Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology Steve Charles, MD, FACS, has been inducted to the Board of Governors of the ARVO Foundation for Eye Research. Established in 2001 by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), this foundation exists to provide ongoing support for innovative and novel vision research, particularly work with translational impact that fosters collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists. The foundation also encourages the development of new scientists in the field of vision research, as well as researchers in developing countries. As a member of the Board of Governors, Dr. Charles will help set the strategic direction for this important organization.

Dr. Charles also recently delivered the keynote address at ZeroTo510 Investor Day, a program of the Greater Memphis Accelerator Consortium hosted at the Memphis Bioworks Conference Center. His lecture followed opening remarks by entrepreneur and longtime HEI supporter, Joseph R. "Pitt" Hyde III, founder of Autozone and chairman of the board of the Memphis Bioworks Foundation and GTx, Inc. This event helps medical device entrepreneurs navigate the start-up process, refine business models, and file for commercial deployment through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's 510(k) clearance process. As a world renowned vitreoretinal surgeon, engineer, and ZeroTo510 board member, Dr. Charles is a highly prolific medical device developer himself, and the ideal choice to deliver the keynote lecture.

Congratulations to Dr. Charles on his outstanding accomplishments.
