Hendrik P.N. Scholl, M.D., M.A. is the Dr. Frieda Derdeyn Bambas Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute and Head of the Visual Neurophysiology Service. He received his M.D. from the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen, Germany, and did his residency at the Centre for Ophthalmology, University of Tuebingen. He did a clinical research fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK. In 2004, he was awarded a Heisenberg-Fellowship of the German Research Foundation for his achievements in the field of macular degeneration and subsequently joined the faculty at the Dept. of Ophthalmology, University of Bonn for 5 years until he was recruited to the Wilmer Eye Institute in 2010.
Dr. Scholl specializes in medical and surgical management of retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. He has a specific expertise in inherited retinal and macular degenerations and uses latest technology for the diagnosis of these disorders such as electroretinography, microperimetry and high-resolution imaging.
Dr. Scholl's primary research interest relates to visual loss in retinal degenerations and to therapeutic measures in order to rescue vision. He uses psychophysical and electrophysiological methods to measure visual function and high-resolution topographic and tomographic imaging to investigate retinal structure. He aims at developing more efficient markers for upcoming clinical trials. Dr. Scholl has been funded in the past by the European Commission and the German Research Foundation. In 2008, he received the European Vision Award and in 2010 the Wynn-Gund Translational Research Award by the Foundation Fighting Blindness and the Macular Degeneration Research Award by the American Health Assistance Foundation.
Dr. Scholl sees patients at the Wilmer Eye Institute's Johns Hopkins Hospital location.
