Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

  • The Seamans-Hauser Chair in Molecular Ophthalmology

    The Seamans-Hauser Chair in Molecular Ophthalmology was established in 2006 to support the directorship of the Carver Family Center for Macular Degeneration.

    The Chair was made possible by a $2.5 million endowment from Gary and Camille Seamans of Galena, Ill., and Tucson, Ariz., and Leo Hauser of Incline Village, Nevada. The Seamans and Mr. Hauser have been extremely generous to the The Carver Family Center for Macular Degeneration at the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine with their time, wisdom, and energy as well as monitarily.

    This chair has been awarded to Edwin M. Stone, M.D., Ph.D., professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences in the UI Carver College of Medicine, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, and director of the Center for Macular Degeneration.
