I am a cardiovascular physiologist with 27+ years of ocular research experience. For 23 of those years I was continuously funded by the NIH. My RO1 grant was based on a mathematical model of ocular hydrodynamics that I began developing in 1989 and used as the foundation of my initial submission (funded on first attempt) and for each subsequent competing continuation. I am still working on the model as a research and teaching tool and am currently collaborating with the American Academy of Ophthalmology to incorporate the model into their educational website.
