John E. Dowling, Gordon and Llura Gund Professor of Neurosciences of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology as well as professor of Ophthalmology in Neuroscience, recently received the Paul Kayser International Award in Retina Research from the International Society for Eye Research (ISER). He received the award at the 2008 Biennial Congress held in Beijing, in addition to presenting a plenary lecture and participating in a symposium on retinal mechanisms. While in China, Dowling and his wife Judith — former masters of Leverett House — were also guests of Lanzhou University, which is celebrating its centennial this year. At Lanzou, the Dowlings presented a centennial lecture titled “The Art of Seeing” to an audience of about 1,000 university members.
