Trevor J. McGill Ph.D.

  • (503) 466-3829
    • Research Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology School of Medicine

Dr. McGill received his Ph.D. from the University of Lethbridge in 2008 and subsequently joined the Casey Eye Institute at OHSU as a post doctoral fellow. In 2011, Dr. McGill joined the faculty at the Casey Eye Institute as Research Assistant Professor. Dr. McGill’s lab uses both rodent and nonhuman primate models of Retinitis Pigmentosa and Age-related Macular Degeneration to aid in the translation of cell-based and gene therapies for retinal degenerative disease into clinical trials.
