Start dates are flexible. The goal of this experience is for the student to learn the basics of clinical translational research and to participate in paper publications. The topic of the research is 3D imaging of the eye with either spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging or swept source imaging, with spectral domain OCT being perhaps the fastest growing 3-dimensional ophthalmic imaging modality of the past decade. Although the first ultra-high speed ultra-high resolution spectral domain OCT images were obtained by this group’s prototype spectral domain OCT machine (developed by Johannes de Boer, PhD), current research focuses on the current commercially available spectral domain OCT machines housed at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. The long-term goal of this translational research aims to bring this exciting bench research discovery into mainstream clinical practice for the benefit of our glaucoma patients. The hope is that the student will learn about the basics of clinical studies (i.e. patient recruitment, data analysis, etc.). The student will primarily assist in data collection, data downloading and maintenance, and data analysis. If the student is available for a few months, a middle authorship may be achieved. If the student is available for several months to a year, he/she would have an opportunity to write a first author paper. An existing database of over 1,000 patient eye images provide plenty of data for research projects.
