MRC & RCOphth John Lee Fellowship
The eighth President of the College, Mr John Lee, died during his presidency, which was an enormous loss. The College intends to commemorate his outstanding contribution to the ophthalmic profession by creating a named Research Fellowship jointly funded by the Medical Research Council and the College. This is a particularly apt memorial for he was a strong advocate of academic medicine. The Fellowship is likely to begin in 2012 and we are actively seeking contributions to pay our share of the costs which are expected to be in the order of £125,000.
If you would like to make a contribution to this fund you may do so in one of the following ways:
