Abstract

Established in 1981 by Merck & Company, Inc., as the Chibret Award, these awards continue to attain their objective of encouraging young researchers to perform investigative work in critical areas of ophthalmology. Every 2 years, an independent international panel of distinguished ophthalmologists selects topics from which candidates may choose their research projects. Manuscripts describing the research and its results are submitted to each participating Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) organization. Papers must be original, unpublished, and not previously considered for publication, and an international jury selects the top three among them to receive the awards. The awards presentation ceremony occurs at a major international ophthalmic congress. The Ninth Biennial Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD)/Chibret Awards were presented at the XXVIII International Congress of Ophthalmology in Amsterdam during the summer of 1998. Topics included: 1. Morphologic and functional evaluation of the optic nerve</P>2. Cellular mechanisms of corneal dystrophies</P>3. Macular degeneration</P>4. Pathophysiology of strabismic amblyopia</P>5. Pathophysiology and epidemiology of refractive errors The first prize was awarded to Dr. Oliver Arend from the Technical University of Aachen, Aachen, Germany, for a study entitled, “Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy–Based Evaluation of Epipapillary Velocities: Method and Physiologic Variability.” Second prizes were awarded to Dr. Christoph
