David Huang, M.D., Ph.D., receives prestigious vision research award

OHSU Casey Eye Institute researcher David Huang, M.D., Ph.D., is one of six scientists to receive the 2012 António Champalimaud Vision Award, the largest monetary prize for vision research in the world. Dr. Huang was recognized for his role in co-inventing an eye imaging tool called optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the 1990s. Since then, OCT has become the most commonly used imaging tool to test for conditions like macular degeneration and glaucoma.

Watch this short video to hear Dr. Huang explain how the tool works (it’s pretty cool!), or read the OHSU News release.
