The Power List 2015

Monika Fleckenstein

Fleckentein’s clinical and research focus is on AMD, with an emphasis on the natural history and pathogenesis of geographic atrophy (GA). Her aim is to identify the exact pathogenic pathway of the ‘trickling’ GA-subtype and to develop treatment strategies. She is also a co-founder of YouRetina, an initiative to support young retinal specialists within EURETINA.

A nominator said: “A world-wide expert in the fields of AMD and retinal imaging, Fleckenstein has substantially contributed to the understanding of the disease manifestation and natural history of geographic atrophy.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2014, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential people in ophthalmology – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. For our 2015 Top 40 Under 40 list we’ve taken a different approach, asking: who are the young, up-and-coming individuals set to rise to the top of their field? That’s the question we posed to ourselves – and then to you – ahead of open nominations and a painstaking judging process. Our list this year almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977. Though we admit that no list of this type can be definitive, it does clearly show that the future of ophthalmology is very bright indeed. And so, without further ado, we celebrate the movers and shakers aged 40 or under who show what can be achieved with determination, passion and inspiration.
