The Annual Futterman Lecture was named in honor of Dr. Sidney Futterman, a distinguished vision researcher who served as a faculty member at the University of Washington from 1966-1979. Dr. Futterman was the recipient of the prestigious Friedenwald Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) for his exceptional contribution to visual science. Dr. Futterman’s studies on visual pigments and the esterification of vitamin A in the retina have been widely referenced in the field of vision research for over 50 years.
