The entire NIIOS team is very proud that Dr. Gerrit Melles received the prestigious 2022 Champalimaud Vision Award for his pioneering work in the field of corneal transplants.
On September 25, MCMF and NIIOS organized a wonderful concert. The concert was partly to celebrate Dr Melles receiving the Champalimaud Vision Award.
Dr. Melles presented the 79th Jackson Memorial Lecture at the 2022 AAO meeting by reflecting on “How would nature see our corneal triumphs?”. Click here for the lecture essay:
On October 14, we had the pleasure to receive a visit of Rotterdam's mayor Mr. Aboutaleb and introduce our work during a guided tour through the institute.
We feel very honoured that NIIOS/MHR is listed as a top expertise institution for corneal transplantation in a recently published worldwide ranking!
