We are delighted to announce the successful recruitment of six new faculty members from some of the finest institutions across the country. Our physicians’ contributions focus on three major areas: providing expertise to patients in need of specialized care, cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and delivering world-class training to medical students, residents and fellows. We welcome faculty in multiple areas of subspecialty, including vitreoretinal surgery and retinal disease, ocular inflammation, cataract, cornea and external diseases, glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology.

The USC Roski Eye Institute welcomes Sarah Hamm-Alvarez, PhD, vice chair of basic research. Hamm-Alvarez is recognized for advancing the field of vision science, publishing numerous papers and reviews in areas such as trafficking in epithelial cells, lacrimal gland and ocular surface and advanced drug delivery.

“I’m excited to contribute my research and administrative experience to building out basic and translational science research programs and working with our tremendously talented faculty, residents, fellows and students. I look forward to many shared opportunities for scientific discussion, discovery and collaboration that will help us identify areas of research and clinical synergy and new opportunities,” says Hamm-Alvarez.
