Akrit Sodhi, M.D, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute. He specializes in the medical and surgical management of vitreoretinal diseases. His research interests center on identifying novel targets for the early diagnosis and treatment of ocular tumors, with a particular focus on ocular melanoma. Dr. Sodhi's lab studies the contribution of intracellular signaling cascades to the promotion of tumor cell proliferation, survival, and metastasis. These studies may help identify novel diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for patients with this sight- and life-threatening disease.
Prior to joining the faculty, Dr. Sodhi completed residency and fellowship training in retina at Wilmer, where he also served as chief resident.
