In Memory

Denis O’Day

Denis was instrumental in the establishment of the VVRC.  His NEI-funded research program was crucial for Vanderbilt’s successful competition for a National Eye Institute Core grant.  Denis also supported the re-establishment of a National Eye Institute training grant at Vanderbilt by working with Maureen Powers to organize a joint seminar series bringing together Ophthalmology researchers and residents with vision researchers from other departments.  His visionary leadership will be missed.
