Schultz, MD / Ruth Works Professor of Ophthalmology, and Professor of Biophysics, Biomedical Engineering, and Cell Biology, Neurobiology & Anatomy at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Carroll directs the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program (AOIP), which utilizes a variety of retinal imaging tools to study the structure and function of the living human retina. The group has worked to develop image analysis approaches to increase the scientific and clinical utility of these imaging devices and has pioneered the dissemination of this technology to research groups around the world. Dr. Carroll and his team have been at the forefront of the clinical application of adaptive optics retinal imaging, with over 190 peer-reviewed publications. His work focuses broadly on inherited retinal degenerations, including albinism, achromatopsia, retinitis pigmentosa, and Usher Syndrome.
