Jeffrey S. Mumm, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology
Expertise: Medical Diseases of the Retina
Research Interests: Retinal regeneration; Retinal circuitry; Drug delivery
Jeff Mumm, Ph.D., is an associate professor of ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute and the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His areas of research include retinal regeneration, retinal circuitry and drug discovery. In his lab, he utilizes zebrafish to study the formation of neural circuits in the retina, as well as the regenerative capabilities of retinal cells, with the goal of developing better drugs to treat retinal diseases.
Dr. Mumm received his B.S. in biology from the University of Iowa and his Ph.D. in neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University, focusing on neural circuit formation in the retina. He previously served as the president and research director of Luminomics in St. Louis, MO, and as an assistant professor of cellular biology and anatomy at Georgia Regents University before joining the Wilmer faculty in 2014.
