Harminder Dua

Chair and Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Nottingham

An active clinician, teacher and prolific researcher, Harminder Dua’s most well-known contribution to the world of ophthalmology was his group’s discovery of a new pre-Descemet’s corneal layer back in 2013. He served as co-Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Ophthalmology, and is a past president of both EuCornea and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. His research and innovations have changed clinical practice across the world, and the discovery of Dua’s Layer in the cornea has already informed three new surgical techniques, made lamellar corneal transplantation safer, and improved our understanding of the core of the trabecular meshwork – which is actually an outgrowth of his eponymous corneal layer.
