Scholars' Dinner

The SUNY College of Optometry held its annual Scholars' Dinner last month to recognize the scholarly activates of both students and faculty at the College over the past academic year. Graduate student Stanley Komban received this year’s annual Dr. Dean Yager Award for the best published research paper by a student. Dr. Yager was a well-known research scientist in areas ranging from color vision in fish to human psychophysics of reading, peripheral vision, low vision and electronic displays. He joined the College in 1974 as dean and founding chairman of the Graduate Program in Vision Science and trained many graduate students who hold academic and clinical positions today. Also acknowledged at the event were Dr. Jens Kremkow who received recognition for the best first-authored research paper by a post-doctoral fellow and Dr. Jose-Manuel Alonso who was named a SUNY Distinguished Professor.
