Tribute to Miguel Burnier

Tribute to Miguel Burnier

Professor Miguel Burnier Jr. has been my professor, mentor, role model, and friend even before I entered medical school. He was fundamental during my postgraduate studies since he was the reason why I chose ocular oncology as my area of academic research. More than 50 colleagues from Brazil and other parts of the world are as lucky as I am for having Professor Burnier as their PhD advisor and as their friend; hundreds more have learned from him at his laboratory. It is truly a pleasure for me to donate to the Foundation of the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology in honor of Professor Burnier.,

Tribute to Arun Singh

Tribute to Arun Singh

“Professor Arun Singh was my professor in ocular oncology way back in 2008, and he has served as my mentor since then. For 10 years, he has been fundamental not only in my professional growth but also in my goal of making my ocular oncology service in São Paulo the largest eye cancer center in Latin America. He still serves as our international advisor in difficult cases, providing knowledge and guidance as an international volunteer. I am blessed to have him as my गुरु जी.
