Northwestern Medicine faculty have a long history of helping to translate scientific evidence into clinical practice guidelines for the nation’s clinicians. Amani Fawzi, MD, of Northwestern Medicine Ophthalmology, has long been a leader in developing guidelines for management of several ophthalmic conditions, including:
Dr. Fawzi is the Cyrus Tang and Lee Jampol Professor of Ophthalmology at Northwestern Medicine. Her clinical focus is on retinal conditions, including surgical retinal diseases and medical diagnostic dilemmas. Her research involves translational approaches to age-related macular degeneration, ischemic retinal diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases through the latest techniques in functional retinal imaging and image-guided interventions.
Dr. Fawzi serves on the editorial boards of Scientific Reports (Nature), Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, as well as serving on several NIH study sections. She has authored over 180 publications and has been elected as a member of the Retina and Macula Societies. She has received the Honor Award of the American Society of Retina Specialists and the Achievement Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Fawzi is currently the primary investigator on two grants from the National Eye Institute. The first project is studying the process of retinal vascular damage that leads to retinal blindness from lack of oxygen and nutrients. The second project aims to study retinal blood flow, detected by non-invasive imaging, during medical treatments for diabetic retinopathy.
