The Power List 2020 is here
Jeffrey Goldberg, MD, PhD
Blumenkranz Smead Professor and Chair of Ophthalmology
Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg's clinical effort is focused on patients in need of medical or surgical intervention for glaucoma and other retinal and optic nerve diseases, as well as cataract. His research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve, a major unmet need in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies, and his laboratory is developing novel stem cell and nanotherapeutics approaches for eye repair.
Daniel Palanker, PhD
Director of HEPL, Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
Dr. Palanker is working on optical and electronic technologies for diagnostic, therapeutic, surgical and prosthetic applications, primarily in ophthalmology. These studies include laser-tissue interactions with applications to non-damaging retinal laser therapy and to ocular surgery with ultrafast lasers. In the field of electro-neural interfaces, Dr. Palanker is developing retinal prosthesis for restoration of sight to the blind and implants for electronic control of organs, including secretory glands and blood vessels. He is also working on interferometric imaging of neural signals.
Kuldev Singh, MD, MPH
Professor of Ophthalmology
Dr. Kuldev Singh is the Director of the Glaucoma Service. His current research interests include glaucoma and cataract surgical trials, the epidemiology of myopia and glaucoma, ophthalmic genetics as well as health care delivery in underserved communities in the United States and overseas. Dr. Singh's clinical practice focuses on the medical, laser and surgical management of glaucoma and cataract.
Geoffrey Tabin, MD
Fairweather Foundation Professor of Ophthalmology
Dr. Geoff Tabin is Co-Founder and Chairman of the Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP). Dr. Tabin spends a considerable part of the year working abroad throughout the Himalayas and Sub-Saharan Africa. At Stanford his practice focus encompasses surgery and treatment of diseases of the anterior and external eye including cataract and corneal surgery.
