Dr. Boris Gramatikov Receives Research Award

November 7, 2012

Boris Gramatikov

Dr. Boris Gramatikov, an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute, has received a Biomedical Research Collaboration Award from the Hartwell Foundation. The award was presented to Dr. Gramatikov and Cynthia Toth, a professor of ophthalmology and biomedical engineering at Duke University, for their proposal, “Diagnosis and Management of Infant Retinal Disease: Fast Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Synchronized with Central Fixation”. They will receive $629,957 in combined direct cost over three years to develop a hand-held imaging tool that will allow clinicians to more easily evaluate and diagnose infants and toddlers with retinal diseases.

Dr. Gramatikov has been a Wilmer faculty member since 2000. He is a biomedical engineer with expertise in medical instrumentation, electronic hardware, computer software, signal processing and data analysis. His current research interests are in focus detection and retinal birefringence scanning, including transition from the laboratory bench to clinical settings, with the goal of identifying and treating children with strabismus (misaligned eyes) or anisometropia (unequal refractive error) before irreversible amblyopia (functional monocular blindness) results.

The Hartwell Foundation's mission is to grant awards to individuals for innovative and cutting-edge biomedical applied research that will benefit children.
