WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a clinician-scientist who is dedicated to finding the specific inherited causes of glaucoma, many diseases that constitute the number one cause of irreversible blindness in the world. My team at Duke has assembled one of the largest groups of patients and families in the world. This includes people from Africa (Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria, and others), India, Iceland, the Philippines, and thousands from the United States. These wonderful people are all helping us and each other to find out what causes this disease. Together we will beat it!
