The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, or ARVO, the largest eye and vision research organization in the world, has selected ECE associate professor and Edward & Maria Keonjian Endowed Chair Wolfgang Fink as a member of its 2023 class of Fellows. He will be honored with Silver Fellow status at the organization’s annual conference in April 2023.
This recognition is particularly significant because ARVO is one of the first professional societies Fink became involved with while still a PhD student in Germany.
“This is in recognition of over 27 years of service, research, productivity and contributions to the ophthalmic and vision science community,” Fink said. “The society definitely sets the standard in ophthalmology and vision science worldwide. You have so many scientists and clinicians in the field come to the annual meetings, and it’s sort of the stock exchange, or news platform, where you learn about the latest and greatest advancements in all areas.”
This marks his sixth fellow title, with others in the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, the Prognostics and Health Management Society and SPIE (the international society for optics and photonics).
