The Power List 2016

Joan Miller

Chief and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Mass General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston

Not only a pioneer of photodynamic therapy using verteporfin, Joan Miller also helped to define the role of VEGF in retinal vascular disease, helping to form the scientific basis of angiogenesis inhibitor drug use in the eye – something that she and six of her Harvard Medical School colleagues received the 2014 António Champalimaud Vision Award for. Today she continues to investigate the molecular pathophysiology of vision loss and to develop improved therapies for retinal disease.
