Heather Chandler receives Gray Lady Foundation award

Dr. Heather Chandler, associate professor of optometry at The Ohio State University, received an award from the Gray Lady Foundation to study Intraocular drug delivery via a pentablock polymer to prevent canine posterior capsule opacification.

In this work, Dr. Chandler will continue her study of a thermogel drug delivery device designed for intraocular release. Her aim is to develop a new strategy for preventing posterior capsule opacification in canines, which occurs in a majority of dogs after cataract surgery.

About the Gray Lady Foundation: The mission of the Gray Lady Foundation is to create and support opportunities to improve the overall health and the conscientious breeding and quality of life for canines, in particular, Miniature Schnauzers, by providing grants to support basic and applied research activities in canine genetics and the study of canine diseases. We will also promote the establishment and maintenance of disease databases to support these research goals.
