He practices comprehensive ophthalmology at the Kresge Eye Institute with a focus on cataract surgery, corneal and ocular surface wound healing, and dry eye disease. His research interests focused on developing thymosin beta 4 into a novel corneal wound healing agent that suppresses inflammation and promotes tissue survival. Currently, he is studying the wound healing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptosis properties of thymosin beta 4 in two Phase III clinical trials for dry eye disease and neurotrophic corneal ulcers.
