Keeler Awards Scholarship
Daniel Morris has been awarded the £20,000 Keeler Scholarship administered by The Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
Using the scholarship money, Daniel plans to travel to The Vancouver General Hospital & Health Sciences Centre, Canada to undergo an oculoplastic, orbital and lacrimal fellowship for 6 months to develop his skills in this area in one of the most renowned fellowship programmes in the world and bring new techniques back to the UK.
Following on from this, Daniel will travel to northern Kenya to investigate surgical intervention for cicatrical entropion caused by trachoma using a controlled trial. “I am thrilled to have been awarded this very generous scholarship from Keeler. It allows young ophthalmologists like myself to broaden their experience for the benefit of their patients back in the United Kingdom and carry out interesting research for the good of the global community.”
Richard Keeler, Trustee and past Chairman of the company, commented on Daniel’s award: “Daniel has an impressive resume and attitude and is a very worthy recipient of this Fellowship award. The Keeler Scholarship was set up in 1990 to enable young ophthalmologists, who might not otherwise be able to afford it, to study at specialist centres of excellence overseas or in the UK. We wish Daniel all the best with his research.”
