Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg is Professor of Ophthalmology and Chair of the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford University. He received his clinical training in ophthalmology and glaucoma at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL, the top eye hospital and training program in the nation. His research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and other retinal neurons, and his laboratory is developing novel stem cell and nanotherapeutics approaches for ocular repair. His clinical effort is focused on patients in need of medical or surgical intervention for glaucoma and other retinal and optic nerve diseases. Dr. Goldberg received his B.S. magna cum laude from Yale University, and his M.D. and Ph.D. from Stanford University where he made significant discoveries about the failure of optic nerve regeneration. His areas of clinical expertise include: retinal cell survival and regeneration in glaucoma and other degenerative disease, early phase clinical trials in neuroprotection and vision restoration.
