July 9, 2012

Wilmer Eye Institute would like to congratulate Dr. David Friedman, Alfred Sommer Professor of Ophthalmology, on being honored by the Alcon Research Institute at its annual symposium with a $100,000 research grant. Dr. Friedman was one of six ophthalmologists to receive an award this year. Awardees are nominated by their peers and selections are based on their contributions to ophthalmic research.

Dr. Friedman, who also holds an appointment as a professor in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is a world-renowned glaucoma specialist and cataract surgeon whose research focuses on the mechanisms, epidemiology and prevention of angle-closure glaucoma. His current research in angle-closure glaucoma is being conducted through clinical trials in south China.

He graduated summa cum laude from Yale University, received his medical degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Friedman completed his residency in ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital and was a glaucoma fellow at Wilmer.
