The Ida Mann 2020 special issue: Vision scientists breaking the glass ceiling

This special edition is celebrating some of the leading female vision scientists worldwide

The Ida Mann 2020 special issue is now out and looks superb, with some very high quality papers. This issue is a tribute to Professor Dame Ida Caroline Mann, a distinguished ophthalmologist recognised for her inspiring work on embryology and development of the eye, as well as genetic and social influences on eye diseases. She was awarded a personal Chair from the University of Oxford, UK in 1945, the first woman to receive a professorship at Oxford. Thanks for all the huge efforts from feature issue editors (and OPO board members) Shahina Pardhan, Ruth van Nispen, Laura Downie, Jason Porter and Ben Thompson.

Please pass this table of contents to colleagues who would be interested and note that all papers are either open access or free access.
