Paul's School in New Hampshire, he completed his bachelor's Phi Beta Kappa , graduate, and medical education at Johns Hopkins University. Dohlman Chair in Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. He assumed the position of Professor and Chair of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University Kansas School of Medicine Kansas City in 1989 and moved on to his present position at Medical College of Wisconsin in 1997. Reza then completed additional fellowship training in Immunology and Uveitis at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, and in Ocular and Transplantation Immunology at the Schepens Eye Research Institute. In addition to his role as Senior Scientist and Co-Director at the Schepens Eye Research Institute, Dr.
Besharse is currently The Marvin Wagner Professor and Chair of the Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Her research focuses on the signaling pathways used by nerves and growth factors in the lacrimal gland and conjunctival goblet cells to induce secretion and proliferation and how dysregulation of these pathways can lead to dry eye syndromes in mouse models and humans, particularly after refractive surgery. This four-volume reference is unique in its coverage of information on all tissues important for vision, including the retina, cornea and lens. The Encyclopedia is also particularly useful for visual scientists and practitioners who are researching a new area, seeking deeper understanding of important research articles in fields adjacent to their own, or reviewing a grant outside their immediate area of expertise. He performed his residency in Ophthalmology at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago, followed by a clinical fellowship in Cornea and External Diseases at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia.
As a clinician-scientist, he has a particular interest in the molecular and cellular mechanisms of inflammation as they pertain to the ocular surface and anterior segment pathologies, including dry eye, allergy, wound healing responses, and transplant rejection. Dana also holds a Master of Science degree in Management from Harvard University. Dartt served as the Acting Director of Research and the Director of Scientific Affairs for ten years. Her primary research interest is the neural regulation of tear production. He is currently a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, and of a start-up biotechnology company, Acucela.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from St. She is on the Editorial Board for Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Experimental Eye Research, and The Ocular Surface. Besharse's research has focused on membrane turnover, circadian clocks, and microtubule-based transport in photoreceptors with special attention to fundamental pathways that are disrupted in photoreceptor degenerative diseases. She was a founding member, a member of the organizing committee, and more recently Treasurer for the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society. His research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health since 1978. This Encyclopedia is invaluable for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are seeking an introduction to an area of eye research.
Reh is Professor of Biological Structure and Director of the Neurobiology and Behavior Program at the University of Washington. This Encyclopedia is invaluable for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are seeking an introduction to an area of eye research. He was appointed to the faculty of Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at Emory University School of Medicine in 1977, becoming full professor in 1984. It also covers the physiological and pathophysiologic processes that affect all eye tissues. She served as Vice-President for North America for the International Society for Eye Research and a Councilor for the International Society for Contact Lens Wear. At the Schepens Eye Research Institute Dr. .
This four-volume reference is unique in its coverage of information on all tissues important for vision, including the retina, cornea and lens. Among his awards are the Alcon Research Award for outstanding research in Vision Science 1993 , the Alumni Achievement Award from Southern Illinois University 1998 and the Distinguished Service Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology 2005. Besharse is a past member of the editorial boards of Investigative Ophthalmology and Vision Science and Vision Neuroscience and served as the Retina Section Editor of Experimental Eye Research. After post-doctoral fellowships at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Dr. The Encyclopedia is also particularly useful for visual scientists and practitioners who are researching a new area, seeking deeper understanding of important research articles in fields adjacent to their own, or reviewing a grant outside their immediate area of expertise. Reza has been a member of the full-time Harvard faculty since 1995. She received the Lew R.
As the first comprehensive reference for the eye, its support structures, diseases, and treatments, Encyclopedia of the Eye is an important resource for all visual scientists, ophthalmologists, and optometrists, as well as researchers in immunology, infectious disease, cell biology, neurobiology and related disciplines. Each chapter explains the basic concepts and provides references to relevant chapters within the Encyclopedia and more detailed articles across the wider research literature. Dartt joined the Schepens Eye Research Institute in 1985. The Eye has fulfilled the Editors' plan to provide a modern reference work that covers the basic science of the eye, and provides the reader with easily understandable articles. Dartt directs the Institute's Department of Defense Research Program and chaired four Military Vision Research Symposia. With regard to their plan to make the reference work accessible to a wide variety of students, researchers, engineers, optometrists and ophthalmologists, The Eye is a testimony that they succeeded in their quest…The editors and the contributors are to be congratulated for providing the eye community with a useful and recommended reference book. Each chapter explains the basic concepts and provides references to relevant chapters within the Encyclopedia and more detailed articles across the wider research literature.
Reza Dana holds the Claes H. After a brief period on the faculty at Old Dominion University in Virginia, he moved to Columbia University as a post-doctoral fellow in retinal research. It also covers the physiological and pathophysiologic processes that affect all eye tissues. . .
