Giving back to the research community is something that we strive to do. There are a number of ways in which we are already giving back, but we thought it would be great to help out in a way that most companies do not. That is why JournalPrep.com is sponsoring a travel award for this year’s Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) annual meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“There are researchers that simply cannot afford to travel to international meetings to present their work,” says company President Shawn Maloney, who is actively involved in ophthalmic pathology research and already raises money for the field via Student Vision Canada, a charity that he co-founded in 2007. “That is why we have established this travel award for the 2011 ARVO meeting.” When asked about sponsoring awards for other academic meetings, Maloney said that the business was planning to do so in the near future. “As the business continues to grow we will do our part and give back to the community.”
