  • Ankush Madaan

    Ankush Madaan

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Ophthalmology

    Bio Originally from India, Ankush completed his Bachelors in Pharmacy from Guru Nanak Dev University in 2009. He completed his Masters in 2011 from McGill University, Montreal, Canada where he worked on investigating the role of intermediates of carbohydrate metabolism in regulating retinal angiogenesis. Furthermore, he obtained his PhD from Faculty of Medicine, McGill University in 2016 under the mentorship of Dr. Sylvain Chemtob.

    His graduate research focus revolved around investigating the role of intermediates of carbohydrate metabolism and orphan GPCRs in modulation of the following:
    1) Angiogenesis/Retinal vascular development in Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
    2) Modulation of inflammation during Preterm Labor
    3) Regulation of Brain angiogenesis and rescue after post hypoxic-ischemic Brain injury

    He received a couple of scholarships during his stint at McGill including CIHR-DDTP, CIHR-SBTP, FRSQ-VHRN scholarship and Graduate Provost Scholarship. He worked as a Biomarkers Scientist at Charles Rivers Laboratories, one of the leading CRO's for a year after his PhD. Ankush recently joined Department of Ophthalmology, Stanford University as a Post Doctoral Researcher under the guidance of Dr. Jeffery Goldberg.

  • Michael Marmor

    Michael Marmor

    Professor of Ophthalmology, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research concerns diseases of retinal function, techniques of clinical electrophysiology, and experimental studies on retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) function including fluid transport and retinal adhesiveness. Other studies consider aspects of vision and art, and ophthalmic history.
    Published over 300 journal articles, chapters, books (only selected articles listed).

  • Louise Alessandra Mesentier Louro

    Louise Alessandra Mesentier Louro

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Ophthalmology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Interested in understanding how glia shapes neuronal fate in neurodegenerative diseases and in designing therapeutic approaches to prevent retinal ganglion cell loss and irreversible damage to the optic nerve, the only connection between the eye and the brain.

  • Artis A. Montague, MD PhD

    Artis A. Montague, MD PhD

    Clinical Associate Professor, Ophthalmology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Multicenter Catalys Consortium Trial - To compare femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery with conventional cataract surgery

  • Darius M. Moshfeghi

    Darius M. Moshfeghi

    Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Moshfeghi leads the Stanford University Network for Diagnosis of Retinopathy of Prematurity (SUNDROP network). The SUNDROP network utilizes RetCam 3 cameras to provide remote screening of retinopathy of prematurity at outlying neonatal intensive care units. Active sites include Dominican Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and O'Connor Hospital.

  • Heather Moss

    Heather Moss

    Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinician scientist with a background in engineering, epidemiology and neuro-ophthalmology. In my research, I combine tools from these disciplines with the goal of understanding and preventing vision loss from optic nerve diseases. My focus is on papilledema, the swelling of the optic nerve head due to elevation in intracranial pressure, which we are characterizing using electrophysiological and imaging techniques. Other areas of interest are peri-operative vision loss and optic neuritis.

  • Prithvi Mruthyunjaya

    Prithvi Mruthyunjaya

    Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr Mruthyunjaya has maintained a broad research interest with publications in both ocular oncology and retinal diseases.
    His focus is on multi-modal imaging of ocular tumors and understanding imaging clues that may predict vision loss after ocular radiation therapy. He coordinates multi-center research on the role of genetic testing and outcomes of treatments of ocular melanoma.
    In the field of retinal diseases, his interests are in intra-operative imaging to enhance surgical accuracy.
