The Power List 2017

Anthony Kuo

Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Biomedical Engineering, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC, USA

Kuo is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. He is a clinician-scientist with an active clinical practice in cornea and refractive surgery and an active laboratory program developing and translating OCT technologies for ophthalmic use. Specifically, he and his team are developing OCT methods to unify and digitally scan the whole eye. With collaborators at Duke, he is also involved in the development and translation of intra-surgical OCT technologies including 4D intra-surgical OCT (live 3D volumes across time). His research is supported by grants awarded by the National Institutes of Health, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, and the Department of Defense. He has also been awarded an Alcon Research Institute Young Investigator Award, the Dastgheib Pioneer Award in Ocular Innovation, and the Duke Health Scholar Award.

A nominator said: “We have a lot of stars in the field of ophthalmology at Duke but one of the fastest rising stars is Kuo. His work that is making intraoperative real-time 4D-OCT mainstream is truly remarkable. DSAEK, DMEK, and PDEK procedures in patients considered complex with poor visibility would be impossible without this technology that Kuo is developing and advancing.”

Welcome to the 2017 Power List.
