Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg is Professor of Ophthalmology and Director of Research at the Shiley Eye Institute of the University of California San Diego. His clinical effort is focused on patients in need of medical or surgical intervention for glaucoma and other retinal and optic nerve diseases, as well as cataract. His research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and other retinal neurons, and his laboratory is developing novel stem cell and nanotherapeutics approaches for ocular repair.
Dr. Goldberg received his B.S. magna cum laude from Yale University, and his M.D. and Ph.D. from Stanford University where he made significant discoveries about the failure of optic nerve regeneration. He did his clinical training in ophthalmology and then in glaucoma at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, and was awarded a fellowship from the Heed Foundation. He was named the 2010 Scientist of the Year by the Hope For Vision foundation, and received the Cogan award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology in 2012. He was elected in 2010 to the American Society of Clinical Investigation, an honorary society of physician scientists. He directs an NIH-funded laboratory and oversees research in the Department of Ophthalmology at UCSD. His goal is to translate scientific discoveries to patient application. He has already developed significant experience with implementing clinical trials, having successfully cleared two INDs through the FDA for Phase I trials for optic nerve neuroprotection and regeneration, which began in 2011.
