Other Academic Achievements

  1. Visiting Fellowships

    I have carried out various international visiting fellowships:

    • National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in the National Eye Institute (NEI) under the supervision of Dr Emily Chew and Dr Robert Nussenblatt. The NEI is part of the National Institutes of Health and leads the US government's research on the visual system and eye diseases. NEI supports basic and clinical science programmes that result in the development of sight-saving treatments.

      Dr Emily Chew specialises in medical retina, in particular age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, nutrition and vision as well as epidemiology of the aforementioned.  Dr Chew currently chairs the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS 2), which is testing supplements containing plant- and fish-derived nutrients for preventing advanced age-related macular degeneration. She also chairs the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) Eye Study, which is looking at the effects of tight blood sugar, lipid, and blood pressure control on diabetic retinopathy.

      Dr Nussenblatt serves as a world-class ocular immunologist whose main interest is within uveitis as well as the role of inflammation in causing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
