Dr. Campochiaro was trained at the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the University of Virginia, and Wilmer, joining the Wilmer Faculty in 1991. He is currently the George S. and Dolores Dor Eccles Professor of Ophthalmology and Neuroscience at the Wilmer Institute. His major research interests are in gaining a greater understanding of the roles of peptide growth and trophic factors in the retina and retinal pigmented-epithelium with an ultimate goal of developing new treatments for proliferative retinopathies, choroidal neovascularization and retinal degenerations.
