Mark HumayunThe grandson of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah's personal physician, Mark Humayun, received the United States top honor in the field of technology and innovation given by US President Barack Obama. Dr. Humayun was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation.

Dr. Humayun is the co-inventor of 'Argus II' series of retina implants, which restores sight for those suffering from blindness. His invention is inspired by the loss of sight suffered by his grandmother, when she lost her vision due to diabetic which motivated him to become an ophthalmologist, hoping he could save the sight of others

Humayun is also the only ophthalmologist to be elected as a member of both US National Academies of Medicine and Engineering.
