The 2013 International Myopia Conference will memorialize the many contributions to the field of myopia research of Josh Wallman, a long-term faculty member in the Department of Biology of City College, City University of New York, who pioneered the use of the avian model for understanding eye growth and made invaluable contributions to vision research and the field of myopia. He succumbed to pancreatic cancer on March 3, 2012. He will be remembered for his promotion of young researchers, his scientific acumen, and also his wit, which never faltered.
