As one of her nominators commented: “Carol Karp is expert in the management of ocular surface tumors and anterior segment surgery. In the late 1990s, she pioneered the use of interferon for the treatment of ocular surface squamous neoplasia. She designed protocols to study the drug in patients with ocular surface tumors curing them of their cancer without surgery. She has continued to explore novel methods to treat surface cancers. In addition, she has innovated the use of high resolution anterior segment OCT which has helped to revolutionize advances in the management of ocular surface tumors. A leader in the area of ocular surface oncology, her research has produced numerous landmark articles and her work has helped to change the standard of care of these lesions.”
