Resident Research Day

The UMMC Ophthalmology Resident Research Day and Samuel B. Johnson, MD, Memorial Lecture is the annual conference to showcase resident and faculty research projects as well as hear lectures from a leader in the field on ophthalmic research. 

Each Department of Ophthalmology resident is responsible for one clinical or basic science research project every year. Results of their projects are presented with their faculty preceptors at Resident Research Day. In addition, there is a guest lecturer present to give the featured lecture in honor of Dr. Samuel B. Johnson, the first UMMC Department of Ophthalmology chair.

The 2020 lecturer is Hossein Ameri, MD, PhD, who serves as an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the USC Roski Eye Institute of the University of Southern California and the director of the USC Retinal Degeneration Center. His lecture is titled "Gene Therapy for Ocular Diseases."
