It is with deep sadness that the Krembil Research Institute reports on the passing of its dear friend, colleague and mentor, Dr. Martin J. Steinbach, on Saturday June 24 after a stroke.
"Marty," as he was widely known, was a Senior Scientist in the Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute at Krembil; Research and Promotions Director, Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences, University of Toronto; and a Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at York University.
"When I first arrived here, I had a meeting with Marty, who was still head of Vision," recalls Dr. Donald Weaver, Director of the Krembil Research Institute.
"He looked at me and said: 'As long as we all do good science, the Institute will do just fine because that's what it's all about.'"
Marty served as the Director of the Vision Program and Vision Science Research program at the (Toronto Western Research Institute, now Krembil) until 2013. Under his leadership, the program moved to the forefront of the vision research community of Canada. He is widely acknowledged as a tireless and dedicated champion of vision health research across the country and will be sorely missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Martin J. and Eric Jon Steinbach Vision Science Research Fund for the Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute at the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family, please call 416-340-4430 or visit www.tgwhf.ca/tribute.
