SOVS congratulates Dr Barbara Zangerl on her recent promotion to Senior Research Fellow.

Dr. Zangerl’s well-rounded education in the medical and genetic field facilitated a US based research career focused on understanding mechanisms leading to heritable blinding disorders and the development of effective treatments. Her appointment as Research Fellow at the School of Optometry and Centre for Eye Health, UNSW Sydney, in 2012 provided the opportunity to translate basic research into clinical paradigms refining early diagnoses of chronic progressive eye disease and implement improved service provision to optimise vision outcomes.

Dr. Zangerl is continuing her work as a Senior Research Fellow expanding the current understanding of the structure-function relationship in the retina and optimising clinical paradigms for the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
