Guest Speaker

Thomas V. Johnson III, MD, PhD

Dr. Johnson is a clinician-scientist and the Allan and Shelly Holt Rising Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He completed hisPhD in neuroscience at the University of Cambridge (UK) where his doctoral research evaluated mesenchymal stem cell transplantation as a potential neuroprotective treatment for glaucoma. He has been at Johns Hopkins since 2010 where he completed medical school, ophthalmology residency, glaucoma fellowship, and served as the Wilmer Eye Institute’s Assistant Chief of Service (ACS). Dr. Johnson is a glaucoma specialist and treats patients in the clinic and operating room for 1-2 days per week. The remainder of his time is spent in his translational neuroscience laboratory where is he investigating retinal ganglion cell replacement therapies for vision restoration in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies. He is especially interested in the functional engraftment of transplanted neurons into mature and diseased retinal circuitries. As a strong advocate of open science and collaborative research, Dr. Johnson serves as the Chair of the Organizing Committee for the international RGC Repopulation, Stem Cell Transplantation, and Optic Nerve Regeneration (RReSTORe) Consortium. He also has a clinical interest in understanding the relationship between intraocular pressure and glaucoma progression, especially through remote tonometry. View full CV.
