The Power List 2016

Caroline Klaver

Professor of Epidemiology and the Genetics of Eye Diseases, Ophthalmologist and Epidemiologist, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam

Klaver is leading an international study on the influence of genes and the environment on four key abnormalities: myopia, AMD, retinal dystrophy and glaucoma, called The Rotterdam Study. She participates in a wide range of projects, such as Generation R, a longitudinal general health study of 10,000 children in Rotterdam, from early pregnancy onwards. She has instigated a number of epidemiological investigations herself, and has initiated a major international research project: Consortium on Refractive Error and Myopia (CREAM). Her work has resulted in groundbreaking insights in the field of macular degeneration, and looks to do similar with myopia.
